That sounds like an HTTP quirk that's fairly common; technically a
request is supposed to end with a CRLF, but that shouldn't be part of
the request content itself (since it's part of the HTTP structure, not
the document). So in theory it should be sending two bytes extra. But
commonly implementations just use \n (sending LF only, not CRLF),
perhaps through ignorance, perhaps laziness, perhaps because under some
conditions the code compiled under Windows will magically translate \n
to CRLF for you (and sending LF only is better than sending CRCRLF)...
