There is a bug in the way the Apache web server handles HTTP requests that use "chunked mode". Chunked mode is a HTTP 1.1 feature that allows a client to send data as a sequence of chunks rather than en bloc. This is useful if it doesn't know the overall length of the content at the time it starts transmitting.
