problem with gatewaying

I have just noticed a problem with xmosaic-2.0pre6 which may be in
the new generic libwww code.

I have
export WWW_http_GATEWAY WWW_gopher_GATEWAY

On this gateway machine is a server based on ncsa-httpd-0.5 which only
forwards html requests and tries to handle gopher-requests (formatting,
etc) by itself.

Now I have noticed a problem which hasn't been there at least in
xmosaic-2.0pre2 (which used the old libwww I think).

Prior my server got gateways-requests as
but now I only get

Anyone knows what to do?

P.S. Marc (Andreessen): I had problems with xmosaic-pre6 not loading certain
images (inlined AND "direct") which went away when I used
ncsa-httpd-1.0a3 instead of ncsa-httpd-0.5. Maybe this is a
HTTP-1.0/not-HTTP-1.0 problem. However the 0.5 server said the image
was delivered.
Saw this topic in the "bugs" list.
