You're right. I suppose we should (1) try to get the server bug fixed and (2) implement some workaround in ELinks. For (1), it would be good to know whether the bug is caused by some local configuration at www.eweek.com, or also present in the standard Apache 1.3.37 distribution. However, the response headers don't list any extra modules, and I don't see any bug-reporting address at the eWEEK or Ziff Davis Enterprise web sites where we could ask how they have configured their server. Perhaps someone at Apache might remember such a bug? For (2), ELinks should preferably detect decompression errors and blacklist the server and retry without Accept-Encoding (if the connection is retryable). Until that is implemented, it seems best to set protocol.http.compression = 0 by default.
