I see that with a non-broken handler which sends the response body 
unconditionally. The output I've posted in my original email is all that's 
seen by an output connection filter.

Besides, shouldn't the output connection filter see the response data 
nevertheless? otherwise how can you calculate a correct C-L when the filter 
weren't given a change to change the data, potentially changing its length.

I'm talking about dynamic handlers, not static data here.
