I understand that this bug was resolved in Apache 1.3.27 [1]. Which is
a few years old now. And outdated by several security releases since

Also OFS.Image been patched as of Zope 2.7.1 [2] in such a way that it
would have already tripped a combination of old-ish Apache and new-ish
Zope. Though ZServer was still throwing in a "Content-Length: 0".
(Which I read as sufficient to provoke the bug in Apache < 1.3.27.)
