Hi Jon,

The issue of the unexpected error (and message) matches this recent fix to
trunk and 2.4.x:

http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=revision&revision=1364606

 The patch looks quite simple to try with 2.2.x.  Can you how much that
helps?  (I don't know what else would happen besides the message.)

With the patch in place, I successfully ran the first example you gave,
like so:

extfilterdefine tee \
  cmd="/usr/bin/tee /tmp/ext_filter_debug" \
  mode=input

setinputfilter tee

Is it possible that your testing showed the file going to zero because of
some other request hitting the server (with no body)?
