Proxy bug?(Ignore previous post: FAQ: setting the proxy)

I have been struggling for some time with the proxy setup,
as it was hanging in a very bad way, repeatedly.  Here is
the trouble, and it seems to be repeatable:

1.  Initialize the proxy as stated in the jigsaw manual.

2.  Make a proxy request (via Jigsaw) to a (non-compliant) address
that does not provide Content-Length information, for example, 	

	http://www.rutgers.edu/

The request will hang at the end of delivery.
(NOTE: I am using Netscape 3.)

3. Interrupt the request.
4.  ALL additional downloads fail.

Is this a known bug, and is it repeatable?

Thanks,
	Peter McIlroy
