Bug Description

When I try to use w3c validator page (, I get following error from that page:

A fatal error occurred when attempting to decode response body from <my web site>. Either we do not support the content encoding specified ("bzip2"), or an error occurred while decoding it.
The error was: Don't know how to decode Content-Encoding 'bzip2'

This is a know issue (= that has been fixed in upstream over a year ago (=, so it is a bit surprising that it is still present in Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy). Lighttpd version as reported with 'lighttpd -v' is:

lighttpd/1.4.33 (ssl) - a light and fast webserver
