Well, we're in a loop here, possibly sending and receiving multiple times
because of redirects.

Which webserver is that?

RFC2616, section 4.4 states that "Messages MUST NOT include both a
 Content-Length header field and a non-identity transfer-coding. If the
 message does include a non-identity transfer-coding, the Content-Length
 MUST be ignored." 

So it looks like your patch does the right thing when we receive a
non-compliant response. I think we have a problem in the sending direction
too but we can address that later.
