lighttpd 1.4.26 has a bug with fragmented SSL requests (see lighttpd issue at -- "lighttpd stalls when reading fragmented ssl requests") that was fixed in rev 2729. Please patch lighttpd 1.4.26 or update package version to 1.4.29.

This [resolved] bug causes certain web browsers to stall when posting forms via SSL, which we heavily utilizes on our servers. On our experimental servers, we have confirmed that 1.4.29 does not have this bug anymore, while 1.4.26 indeed does have it.

I'm experiencing this bug also in Ubuntu 10.04. However it only exists with Chromium. After patching the lighttpd the problem seemed to go away.

Chromium is of version 16.0.912.77 (Developer Build 118311 Linux) and lighttpd of version 1.4.26-1.1ubuntu3.1.

The patch (Fix-stalls-while-reading-from-ssl-sockets-fixes-2197.patch) is available from
