Hello.  To be clear, there is no fix for the "http_inspect\stream
reassembly" bug at the moment (if there is a fix in SVN, let me know
so I can take action here b/c this is seriously a non-trivial bug for
me).  Apparently it is an issue with Stream5 having premature buffer
flushing issues.

Government/Critical Infrastructure companies take note: this bug leads

sounds related to the http_inspect\stream reassembly bugfix

The stream reassembly+http_inspect bug has been around for quite some 
time. The one that got fixed recently with http_inspect was the 
chunked+gzip bug that had also been around for quite some time. 
http_inspect would do either dechuning or gunzip'ing, but not both. So 
if a client downloaded gzip'd http that was chunked, http_inspect would 
dechunk it (but not gunzip it) before shoving it off to the rules engine 
for inspection. This got fixed in 2.9.0 though, so I wouldn't think that 
is the reason for the code change between 2.9.0 and
