Subject [users@httpd] ap_content_length_filter: apr_bucket_read() failed
Date Tue, 14 Dec 2004 11:30:52 GMT
Hi All,

I hope you folks can help get to the bottom of "(104)Connection reset by 
peer:ap_content_length_filter: apr_bucket_read() failed" errors in the 
apache error log.

The error occurs when two conditions are met: 1) htaccess authentication 
is turned on, and 2) a skin other than classic is being used.

Additionally, when the error condition is present, a Mozilla/Firefox 
user will likely have their comment added although they may have to add 
comment or saved their edit more than once (perhaps resulting in 
duplicate postings). An Internet Explorer user on the other hand will 
probably not be able to comment or edit at all -- after pressing the 
button the browser sits there 'receiving' indefinately.

The server environment is is Linux kernel 2.6.9, Apache/2.0.52, perl 
5.8.3, and TWiki 01 Sep 2004 $Rev: 1742 $. Mod_perl, speedycgi etc are 
not used or loaded.

I have STDERR redirected to a log file, but it doesn't produce any 
errors related to this.

I am not the administrator of this machine, e.g. I cannot restart the 
apache server, but I do have read access to the relevant configs if 
necessary and can poke around via ssh.

A page which demonstrates the problem can be seen at:
and the same page using a skin which doesn't exhibit the problem:

Thank you in advance for any assistance you may be able to provide.
I am right now monitering irc://freenode/apache if you want to chat.
