Although I cannot mathematically prove it, there is not in the Tomcat
codebase (o.a.catalina.* packages) any incorrect handling of binary output
which would cause binary corruption. So I stand by my statement. I don't see
any need for doubt when there should not be any.

After that, the network stack of the VM is a black box, so anything can
happen (for example, the connector is using TCP no delay set to true; maybe
that could be causing problems).
