That looks like a bug to me. Content-Type takes a single media type, period:

	Content-Type   = "Content-Type" ":" media-type

and

     media-type     = type "/" subtype *( ";" parameter )
     type           = token
     subtype        = token

<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/rfc2616.html#rfc.section.3.7>.

Maybe that code fragment is also used for "Accept"? ...:

     Accept         = "Accept" ":"
                      #( media-range [ accept-params ] )

     media-range    = ( "*/*"
                      | ( type "/" "*" )
                      | ( type "/" subtype )
                      ) *( ";" parameter )
     accept-params  = ";" "q" "=" qvalue *( accept-extension )
     accept-extension = ";" token [ "=" ( token | quoted-string ) ]
