This turns out not to be a problem. See section 19.2 of RFC 2616:

      1) Additional CRLFs may precede the first boundary string in the
         entity.

(this is related to the optional preamble and epilogue sections in a
MIME multipart message)

And it's a complete bugger to avoid sending them so I think the code
can stay as it is.
