Mod_include is working correctly, as is the content-length filter, in all
of my tests.  The only time I don't get chunked responses for the
content-length, is if I don't put "Transfer-Encoding: chunked" in the
request headers.

mod_include should unset the content length, and the core sets up all the
flags for chunking, so mod_include can safely ignore it.
