Subject [users@httpd] firefox file upload hanging on AMD64
Date Thu, 09 Feb 2006 15:05:31 GMT

A development system I use is failing to upload data 99% of the
time - it very infrequently works 1 in every 1000 or so hits.

I could not find anything in the downloaded list archives
or via altavista and was wondering of anyone else has hit this?


I am still trying to get a truly minimal test case but here is
the gist of the problem.

POST (file upload) data seems to cause Apache2.0.45 to 'hang'.
The backend is perl and (latest stable versions)
I have also updated firefox to latest stable to no end.

In building a minimal test case I am have eliminated
by use of a CGI script that does nothing other than "hello world" :-)


A test case is attached. I am trying this on other linuxen
to see if it is AMD64 specific. A post without a file works
but with even a small file hangs.
