Subject Re: 2.0.23? Input filtering...

Ok.  This _is_ specific to tls/ssl.  I tripped over the 8kb pipe deadlocks on NT,
so my cgi was writing while mod_cgi was still filling the output pipe.

Changing the script to dump it all back proves that 15kb posts work just fine,
even through mod_charset_lite.  I still guess it's an input filtering bug, perhaps
even in the core, but much more likely in tls/ssl themselves.
