Actual Results: Garbage, or partly served PDF files display
Expected Results: Fully displaied PDF Files
Note From Apache's Web Site On Bug Fixes On Apache 1.3.17:
Correct handling of request byte ranges as specified by RFC 2616.

This problem was gone with secureweb-3.2.* up until secureweb-3.2.6-1 which
re-introduced it. Appears to be in 3.2.6-1 and 3.2.7-1. Really need a fix.
Any plans to fix this? Or must I just dump RH 6.x and secureweb server???
Thanks for the report. This is a mass bug update; since this release
of Red Hat Linux is no longer supported, please either:
a) try and reproduce the bug with a supported version of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux or Fedora Core, and re-open this bug as appropriate
after changing the Product field, or,
b) if relevant, try and reproduce this bug using the current version
of the upstream package, and report the bug upstream.
