Bug#421802: apache2: ssl.conf dropped IE workarounds
For no apparent reason, the following IE support lines were removed from mods-available/ssl.conf in the transition from sarge to etch:
SetEnvIf User-Agent ".*MSIE.*" \
nokeepalive ssl-unclean-shutdown \
Doing so breaks file downloads over SSL for a percentage of IE users.
Adding the lines back in solves the problem.
Given that Apache 2.x upstream still has these lines in their default config:
...and that this change is likely to cause problems for many people using Apache to serve files to IE users, can we have those lines back please?
