Opera/IE fail to access JSP pages of MIME type image/svg+xml when using SSL

           Summary: Opera/IE fail to access JSP pages of MIME type
                    image/svg+xml when using SSL
           Product: Tomcat 5
           Version: 5.0.18
          Platform: Sun
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Connector:HTTP
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: dpotter@mitre.org


SSL seems to be failing when the Content-Type header is set to "image/svg+xml".

I've only seen this failure when SSL was running on a Solaris machine.  (uname
-a: SunOS [hostname removed] 5.8 Generic_108528-18 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-60) 
When attempted on Windows, we were unable to duplicate the error.  This reliably
fails when attempted on this specific Solaris machine.  If I get a chance, I'll
try to create a test-case and see if I can reproduce this on other Solaris
machines.  Unfortunately, this was a show-stopper for a release that's being
made today so I'm pressed for time.

Basically, what happens is that we're using a JSP page to create an SVG file. 
Because of this, we have to set the Content-Type header to "image/svg+xml". 
When the MIME type is set to this value, the page fails to load in Internet
Explorer 6 (SP1) with a message of "connection failed" or something similar. 
When an attempt was made in Opera, Opera responded by crashing.  Mozilla
successfully downloaded the file, though.

However, when resetting the MIME type in the page to "text/plain" all three
browsers can access the page without failure.  By back-revving Tomcat to version
4.1.29, we were able to resolve this issue and access the page in all three
browsers.

I'll try and create a test-case later today and verify that it isn't just our
SVG JSP that's failing but any that creates SVG but I'm currently pressed for
time - sorry.
