This is not a valid http message. The http spec seems to want you to  
treat this this is length 2 entity-body, but it's not very clear (it  
also says user-agents MUST warn the user in this case, but I don't  
think anyone does that). Safari 2 and Opera 9 appear to respect this,  
although Firefox 2 doesn't. I don't know if that's a bug or a  
deliberate compatibility feature.
