Subject possible bug in filter.write()
Date Fri, 16 Apr 2004 00:41:30 GMT
I think there may be a bug in the filter.write routine.  It seems that 
if I write more than about 17k in one call I get a bunch of junk output 
to the browser.  It looks like the output of previous requests so I'm 
guessing that it's a buffer overflow of some kind.

Looking at the source of filterobject.c I see that mod_python doesn't 
verify that the apr_bucket_alloc call in filter_write actually 
allocates the requested number of bytes.  Could this be the source of 
the problem?
