      Description

      If PythonInputFilter is used to create an input filter, but content handler isn't actually mod_python but another module which can handle chunked request content, and a request is sent with chunked request content, then things just don't seem to work as one would expect.

      For example, if use:

      $ curl -d "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz" http://home.dscpl.com.au/~grahamd/echo.wsgi --header "Transfer-Encoding: chunked"

      Where the .wsgi script is for mod_wsgi and is:

      import StringIO

      def application(environ, start_response):
      headers = []
      headers.append(('Content-type', 'text/plain'))

      start_response('200 OK', headers)

      input = environ['wsgi.input']
      output = StringIO.StringIO()

      keys = environ.keys()
      keys.sort()
      for key in keys:
      print >> output, '%s: %s' % (key, repr(environ[key]))
      print >> output

      length = int(environ.get('CONTENT_LENGTH', '0'))
      #output.write(input.read(length))
      output.write(input.read())

      return [output.getvalue()]

      and the input filter itself is:

      from mod_python import apache

      def inputfilter(filter):

      filter.req.log_error("inputfilter")

      filter.req.log_error("inputfilter read()")
      s = filter.read()
      filter.req.log_error("inputfilter : %s" % repr(s))
      while s:
      filter.req.log_error("inputfilter write()")
      filter.write(s)
      filter.req.log_error("inputfilter read()")
      s = filter.read()
      filter.req.log_error("inputfilter : %s" % repr(s))

      if s is None:
      filter.req.log_error("inputfilter close()")
      filter.close()
      filter.req.log_error("inputfilter exit()")

      The curl just hangs and logged output is:

      [Mon Jun 08 14:10:37 2009] [error] [client 192.168.1.5] inputfilter
      [Mon Jun 08 14:10:37 2009] [error] [client 192.168.1.5] inputfilter read()
      [Mon Jun 08 14:10:37 2009] [error] [client 192.168.1.5] inputfilter : 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'
      [Mon Jun 08 14:10:37 2009] [error] [client 192.168.1.5] inputfilter write()
      [Mon Jun 08 14:10:37 2009] [error] [client 192.168.1.5] inputfilter read()
      [Mon Jun 08 14:10:37 2009] [error] [client 192.168.1.5] inputfilter
      [Mon Jun 08 14:10:37 2009] [error] [client 192.168.1.5] inputfilter read()
      [Mon Jun 08 14:10:37 2009] [error] [client 192.168.1.5] inputfilter : '\\r
      n'
      [Mon Jun 08 14:10:37 2009] [error] [client 192.168.1.5] inputfilter write()
      [Mon Jun 08 14:10:37 2009] [error] [client 192.168.1.5] inputfilter read()

      First off, a '\r\n' is coming from somewhere when it shouldn't and then it just blocks on read().

      Whatever sentinel is used in input stream to indicate end of chunked request content, it isn't being recognised by mod_python.
