Subject Is it me or the server?
Date Wed, 11 Sep 2002 17:54:42 GMT

I am debugging some changes I've made to the library codebase and 
somethig is driving me crazy.  When I try an example at Userland, things 
work fine.  However, I tried it against the server at usefulinc that 
runs a PHP  XML-RPC server and it breaks.  The cause is some extra 
integers being sent along with the XML.  These integers bump the 
response size over the Content-length and destroy the response.  What 
surprised me is that the unmodified library works fine for the same 
method call!  Did someone build in a leniency feature to deal with this? 
 If so I am having trouble finding it.  Here is a transcript of a 
session with the server.  You can try it yourself.
