Simple warning request: If: POST /somedll.dll HTTP/1.1 Host: Content-Type: text/xml Content-Length: 21

Then no warning issued, if: POST /somedll.dll HTTP/1.1 Host: Content-Type: text/xml Content-Length: 19

Then issue a warning (or tag the packet or something similar) to let user know of content-length mismatch with HTTP payload.

It appears you don't actually have a question, so I'm closing this "question". If you have suggestions for enhancements, you can file them at, and if you'd like to discuss a feature before filing a bug report, then the developers or users mailing lists are the place for that:
