                          [ message-body ]
to
        generic-message = start-line
                          *(message-header CRLF)

                        | response-header        ; Section 6.2
                        | entity-header )        ; Section 7.1
                       CRLF
                       [ message-body ]          ; Section 7.2

                       [ message-body ]          ; Section 7.2
================

Note that these are all the same error, and it's been in the spec
since the very first draft (November 28, 1994).  *sigh*
I'll let you decide whether or not to forward this to the RFC editor.
