I have been using Net/http on the same distro (ubuntu 9.04 and 8.04 with both version) with the most recent version of 1.8.6 and 1.8.7, but it seems that a regression has been introduced somehow.
I am using Net/Http to perfom POST against the same web server and it use to work fine with 1.8.6 any version. I have seen few post about improving the speed of it. I am wondering if those change could have affected the way POST are being sent.
In fact, the same interface I am doing POST against, slight change on some of the value passed to that Interface behave correctly on 1.8.6 but do not with 1.8.7
and on 1.8.6 I get the expected response on with both URL, but on 1.8.7, I get a different response while I should be getting the same response , like in 1.8.6..
I am wondering if the way socket have been optimized is causing some issues?
I have done a wireshark on it and could not see anything obvious on the HTTP level.. so it must be at a lower level I believe.
