Problem with transparent proxy...

Hi Again.

I recently got rid of transproxy (which was working fine) and have started
to use squid for transparent redirection. Now everything is working
perfectly expcet for some CGI places (notably Hotmail users). This is what
the error.lor reports when a Hotmail user submits their user/pass:

1998/07/01 11:09:39| clientReadBody: start fd=46 body_size=78 in.offset=0
cb=0x80683e0 req=0xa86f800
1998/07/01 11:09:39| clientReadBody: fd 46 wait for clientReadRequest

And then, after no luck of getting anything they click on the stop button:

1998/07/01 11:15:27| clientReadBodyAbortHandler: fd=46 body_size=78

If they set proxies, it will work perfectly. This is happening with both
IE4.x and Netscape 4.x users.

I'm running 1.2b22+all_of_henriks_patches_on_his_website_for_1.2b22 (:-)
with and without the patches it doesn't matter) and the relivant
transparent proxy lines are:

httpd_accel_host virtual
httpd_accel_port 80
httpd_accel_with_proxy on
httpd_accel_uses_host_header on
