Are you sure then that the GIF is sent and not the PNG? try to remove all

reindex the Icons directory and see if it happens again.

As I said the server is sending the right bytes. If a specific browser
have a problem with PNG images without the conenction to be cut, then..
you may write a short filter that will add a Connection: close on each

benefit of HTTP/1.1 keepalive features but...
