It appears that the CERN server is not catching SIGPIPE, which is
should -- until then, beware this situation (presumably the server
simply tries to read to a closed socket and SIGPIPE therefore

NCSA httpd 1.0a1 also doesn't catch SIGPIPE (although I've never seen
a problem while testing with Mosaic 2.0pre4), but 1.0a2 will.

... when clicking on an gif link and when interrupting the transfer by
clicking on the NCSA logo on the top left, this kills my server:

[2]  - Broken pipe            httpd_2.07 -p 5002 -v -r rfile -v >& res00

Is this the server or the prerelease 4 problem?

Best regards.
