I think you have my fix to modules/http/http_request.c, right?  If not,
ap_get_client_block can wreak havoc when a request body exists and we do
an internal redirect, such as when the GET is to a directory.

Also, do you send an empty line before the 'x's, or could this be the
problem Aaron noticed?
