I remember very well a byte length calc problem for PDF in 1.3.14 
(retrack the build for November 2000) what caused especially problems on 
a Compaq Alpha machine during user uploads of large pdf files. After 
getting nearly desperated to solve the problem it was fixed with the 
following version. But meanwhile we had instructed the users to split 
their large pdf files :-

see changelogs
-- *) Fix Content-Length calculation when doing Range header processing.
      This makes PDF byteserving work again. [Tony Finch] PR#6711
