New submission from Yoav Weiss <yoav.weiss.fr at gmail.com>:
I'm using BaseHTTPServer's send_response (from within a class that inherits BaseHTTPRequestHandler) with the following:
When response is a httplib's HTTPResponse object, and its headers inherits from rfc822.Message.
What I see is that message is printed as is, including all the headers trailing "\r\n", after which the send_response method (BaseHTTPServer.py:381) adds another "\r\n".
Then send_response adds the "Server" and "Date" headers.
Since the headers before Server & Date include "\r\n\r\n", Date & server are considered by the browser as the content.
Am I misusing BaseHTTPServer? If not, this is a bug and "\r\n" should be removed from line 381, or added only after a check that shows they are not already there at the headers end, or in case there are no input headers.
