Yes, it appeared to us that "ap_get_client_block" is susceptible to short
reads -- it indeed reads a BLOCK until the end of the current IP datagram
but no further. The problem was discovered when we implemented our Web
site with relatively large user submissions (by POST) using the current
version of mod_python. The exact cause of the problem was identified with
the help of "tcpdump".

Sincerely, L.A.Timochouk
