Subject [PATCH] mod_xml2enc eats end of file
Date Fri, 02 Nov 2012 16:05:41 GMT

I just debugged a case where Apache used as reverse proxy filters a
text/javascript file through mod_proxy_html and mod_xml2enc. As
mod_proxy_html sees no business in filtering that file, it removes
itself from the filter chain, but mod_xml2enc still tries to do its job.
In course of mod_xml2enc's processing, the file grows a few bytes due to
some charset conversions. But as the original server sends a
Content-Length header which is not removed by mod_xml2enc, no more than
the original length of the file is sent to the client.

The attached patch based on httpd-trunk fixes that issue by removing the
Content-Length header entirely. Please review it. I would appreciate it,
if it could get applied to trunk and then backported to the httpd-2.4.x
