problem with POST method on CERN 3.0pre6 when operating as a proxy

I'm operating a CERN server as a proxy and I've run across a problem when
dealing with POST methods. It seems that the server inserts a 0x00 byte
after the double CR/LF sequence following the Content-Length field and
prior to the content itself.

For example:

Content-Length: 100\r\n\r\n\0Here goes 100 bytes of content data.......

Most of the servers I attempt to POST to complain that the first field of
the form I'm sending is missing.

Is there a config option I've missed or is it a bug?
