This patch exists because I was asked to write it. I don’t know squat about 
this protocol other than the fact that I followed the spec and it didn’t work. 
I traced a known-good protocol endpoint and found it contained content that 
didn’t agree with the spec. I then obliged the request to submit a patch with 
*what I knew to be true* about the sample that actually worked. I then followed 
the recommendations *advertised on GitHub* for submitting the patch.

You’re welcome.
