AIX 4.1.5, gcc 2.8.0
After a CGI-Script returns (only POST method) i get some HTTP-Headers in 
the document.  Example Output:

<TITLE>Passwort f. HTTP-Server &auml;ndern</TITLE>
<h1>Passwort wurde gešndert</h1>
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Mon, 16 Feb 1998 15:16:58 GMT
Server: Apache/1.3b3
Connection: close
Content-Type: text/html

After this i get the "internal error" message "<h1>OK</h1>"
If you wish i can send you the .shtml and cgi script (python 1.5 with 
I think the problem is that the programm does not check if a header-string
is empty and always appends newlines.  [spurious newlines are added; grep 
for "\015\012" through 'src/main/http_protocol.c']
I think you bvputs/rvputs (or a wrapper around this) should test.

To hide the "OK"-Error-Message i applied this patch:
