 Further testing has identified the following data relevant to this bug
 report.  First, my first suspicions regarding bwrite are incorrect.  That
 routine seems to be operarting properly.
 What I determined is the following.
 Apache atempts to determine the type of document being retruned to the
 client.  On FTP sites, it executes the following set of instructions in
   1010      else {
   1011      if (r->content_type != NULL) {
   1012          ap_proxy_add_header(resp_hdrs, "Content-Type",
   1013                   HDR_REP);
   1014          Explain1("FTP: Content-Type set to %s", r->content_type);
   1015      }
   1016      else {
   1017          ap_proxy_add_header(resp_hdrs, "Content-Type",
 "image/jpeg", HDR
   1018      }
 normally, line 1017 is set to text/plain.  For this experiment, I had it
 default to image/jpeg.  When set this way, jpeg images are properly
 This would seem to indicate that some browser implementations then modify
 the incoming stream based on the content type.  In my case, netscape 4.05
 added the cr characters with the download.  By having apache default to
 image/jpeg, netscape behaved better and properly displayed the image.
 So now, the problem focuses on why didn't apache properly determine the
 content type - and set the headers appropriately.
 I will look into that next.  If any of you have good ideas, please direct
 my research.
