What do you mean by HEADERS phase?  I guess I don't know enough about the
ordering requirements of the filters.

What i did to temporarily fix the problem in my tree was add the
add_output_filter("HTTP_HEADER"...) et. al. to the end of ap_die - this
way, even if the request dies before the insert_filters phase we can be
certain the headers filter is added.

that seems kinda kludgy though....

thanks for the response -
