Commit message

add news for bug 198646

Description of the change

bug 198646 is that some buggy squids can close a connection in the middle of a mime multipart request, before the boundary line; users sometimes hit this and can't easily change their corporate proxy. hat tip to Henrik for the clear description.

This builds on a patch attached to that bug to handle this more cleanly, and it adds a test that does trigger the behaviour.

The test is a bit copy-pasty, but it does cover the case and it's not awful.
