Thanks for your reply.

The rest of my message was:

"Is this the correct behaviour for chunked transfer? I am surprised to see
these headers in the chunk.
Thanks for any advice. Please note I am not subscribed to the list."

I think it got chopped off because I put a few full stops indicate the
vertical equivalent of "..." and "." means end of data in SMTP! Buggy
mailing list software?

My problem is we have a customer who can't interpret this chunk, but also a
java client using third-party HTTP libraries which DOES interpret the chunk
properly! I think we have a bug, my colleagues think the bug lies with the
customer?

Who is right?

Thanks!
