mod_gzip screws up Slash's answers on POST request
Slash 2.0.0 seems not work correctly together with mod_gzip: Every time, I press some button (on a Slash page like submit.pl, comment.pl, users.pl, etc.) which initiates a POST request, I get as result a page, which looks like no POST body has been transmitted or evaluated (e.g. admin.pl always returns me the list of postings) .
I can reproduce this behaviour at least with Netscape 4.77/Solaris 2.7, Opera 5.0b1/Solaris 2.7 and Konqueror 2.11/Linux 2.2.18pre21, so I'm sure, it's no browser bug. Also the logged requests are correct. Just the answer isn't.
I can't say, what exactly goes wrong (or if it's a Slash or mod_gzip bug), but it seems, as if Slash and mod_gzip (which always comes as the very last module) seem to have a little discussion about who has the last word on my server...
If I switch off mod_gzip, everything with Slash works fine.
P.S.: Solaris 2.7, Sun Ultra Sparc 10, Apache/1.3.20 (Unix) mod_gzip/18.104.22.168a mod_perl/1.26 mod_macro/1.1.1 mod_autoindex/color, default Slash config, only paths have been changed..."
It is mod_gzip.
