The core can't do anything about it.  If you are creating a sub-request,
you must flush the data.  We could have the core always flush, but that
would cause us to send flush buckets before any data has been generated,
or in cases where a flush is not required.  The module MUST be the thing
that does the flush.

As for the patch that did solve the first part of the problem, this is
likely to cause problems if the sub-request is promoted to the main
request, as is the case with DirectoryIndex.  We need to add logic to
handle that case.
