Yep, I figured it was the hint we needed. ;)  I just happen to know
about range requests from messing with wget's --continue option.

Of course, the best hint would be from someone who uses privoxy and who
has devised a workaround for this.  (Not me. :P)  If privoxy has a
mailing list (it probably does), someone there might know.

Have a good one,
