just to follow up:

this appears to have been a firefox-specific strangeness. comparing the 
response->body length against what firefox received always matched; 
checking the response->body for the error string always failed, even 
when the error message appeared in the browser. apparently firefox was 
making some kind of additional request (favicon maybe?) that wasn't 
quite doing what it expected. I could not duplicate in Safari, and a 
restart of Firefox appears to have cured it.

odd. Must be Monday.
