[Mono-dev] [PATCH] XSP: Encoding of long string-lengths in FastCGI does not comply with specification

The lengths of strings that are larger than 127 bytes are encoded
incorrectly by the Mono.FastCgi.NameValuePair.WriteLength method: The first
byte must have its high bit set in this case.  To confirm, refer to the
implementation of the reverse decoding-logic in the ReadLength method and
see the FastCGI specification (section 3.4 on Name-Value Pairs): "The
high-order bit of the first byte of a length indicates the length's
encoding. A high-order zero implies a one-byte encoding, a one a four-byte


The attached patch fixes this bug on the trunk.  Would someone please check
and commit it?
