[pkg-lighttpd] Bug#499879: mod_ssi doesn't work when mod_compress is active

Package: lighttpd
Version: 1.4.19-4
Severity: important

I enabled mod_ssi using command "lighty-enable-mod ssi" and created a page
with a few "include" directives.

Then, I displayed the page on "firefox", but no include directive was
executed. When loading the same page with "wget" everything was correctly

I found that firefox was negotiating a compressed HTTP transport, while
wget was using plain HTTP/1.0. So I thought that something could be wrong
on compressed transfers.

Once removed "mod_compress" from lighttpd.conf, the server started to
provide the correct page to all clients types.

So, probably, when using compression, mod_ssi is disabled.
