Description Werner Donn 2009-03-13 04:12:12 UTC
When a WebDAV method, such as PROPFIND, is sent with the encoding set to "gzip" for example, the server returns a Bad Request (400) instead of an Unsupported Media Type (415), as described in section 14.11 of RFC 2616. It seems like the request body is simply parsed without regard to the encoding.
