As it happens, it is not that it is interpreted that way, but rather
that it is served that way by your server:
        HEAD -H "If-modified-since: Thu, 07 Jun 2007 15:53:52 GMT" http://www.shamrock.de/pda
        304 Not modified
        Cache-Control: max-age=57600
        Connection: close
        Date: Mon, 11 Jun 2007 06:00:02 GMT
        Server: Apache/1.3.33 (Unix)
        Content-Type: text/plain
        Expires: Mon, 11 Jun 2007 22:00:02 GMT

Your perl script should either not send a Content-Type header with that
304, or serve the same Content-Type as the original request.

(Note that you could make it so that your perl script also takes into
account its own modification date)
