This probably isn't much help (sorry, don't know much about proxying,
or anything about JBosses), but the problem (assuming it's not a
bizarre browser bug) is almost definitely caused by sending the
incorrect content-type header to the client. It should be text/html,
not text/plain. Why the wrong type is getting sent, I have no idea.
