 Nope, its something other than that... for example, look at this URL:
 
 Apache 1.2:
 
 http://www.ag.ohio-state.edu/~jray/quicktest.cgi
 
 Apache 1.3.4:
 
 http://www.ag.ohio-state.edu:8080/~jray/quicktest.cgi
 
 The source for quicktest.cgi is nothing but:
 
 #!/usr/bin/perl
 $|=1;
 print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
 print "Start.<P>";
 sleep 1;
 print "Finish!";
 
 With 1.2, it executes as you'd expect (for a buffered CGI)... With  
 1.3.4, you immediately get the "Start" - then it just dies.
 
 :(
