Setting the content length to zero seems very wrong.  I suspect we could
remove the content length header altogether, which should let the client
fall back on the chunking lengths, if implemented, or socket close.  Since
this is an exception condition, I don't suppose the HTTP/1.0-style socket 
close should have a necessarily negative impact on performance.
