Good to know.  I wasn't too sure about how that change would impact
things.  It's been ages since I spent any time reading the HTTP spec,
or, more precisely, being exposed to it regularly on the mod_gzip
mailing list.  I forgot that I could just add the host header to an
HTTP 1.0 request and get the needed behavior.

Hehe, that was just a guess on my part, since I've never had to mess
around with a proxy on the machines I use.

Ahh, it helps when you actually know C.  I just guess my way through
it most times.  I'd be quite dangerous if I actually patched up
production systems, but I know my limitations.  :-)

Thanks for the tips and the patch, David!

Enjoy it if/when it does.  My favorite thing is to drive into the
snow, the effect of it coming at you is much better than a start field
screensaver.  Trouble is paying attention to the slick roads as you do
