Had you seen my reply to your original message?

We aren't seeing it, but some Google searching reveals that it's usually
due to a problem with a CGI script not consuming all input.  I'm not sure
how that could be the case with login.fcgi, but at Stanford we always run
it under mod_fcgi, so it's possible that we wouldn't notice.  Are you
using mod_fcgi or running login.fcgi as a traditional CGI script?
