>Release:        1.3.0
>Environment:
Digital Unix V4.0/564
egcs-1.0.3 compiler
>Description:
Netscape 4.05, GNU wget 1.4.3, lynx 2.81dev5 all include the "Date:" HTTP
header field in files downloaded using an ftp:// URL, thus corrupting it.
Apparently this is due to an empty line between Content-Length: and Date:.
>How-To-Repeat:
Download any file using Apache 1.3.0 as an ftp-over-http proxy. Tested with
the URL ftp://ftp.univie.ac.at/packages/gnu/wget-1.5.1.tar.gz
>Fix:
No. I'm not sure where the Date: header is created.
