mod_include kills the C-L as soon as it knows it has a full SSI tag. It may
have split and sent brigades down before this if it has parsed more than the
threshold number of bytes (or if the response spans brigades).

I can change the code to clear the C-L prior to sending anything down, but
I seem to recall that there was a request to clear the C-L only if an SSI
was found to avoid recalculating the C-L when there was no SSI tags.
