I have some cgi programs to generate output using database queries. I use
INCLUDE to include some common html that is also shared with normal html
files (also using INCLUDE). After reading the discussion you were having
with someone about mod_gzip in a newsgroup; I thought using DEFLATE would
be a good idea for me to use since my uplink for my web server is limited
to 384KB/s. I have a couple of indexes that are about 450KB that compress
down to about 100KB. So DEFLATE looked to be a big win when my site was
being accessed by broadband users. (I don't get enough traffic that
there would be much impact for modem users since there is rarely more
than one download going on at the same time.)

I took a look and it looks like the patch is applied to the copy of the
source I still have. I will try to get a fresh copy and retest things
anyway. If it still is happening, I will try to figure out how to use
bugzilla and reopen the ticket.
