When a browser client is receiving a page and decides to go away for
whatever reason, Apache throws an internal server error that
eventually produces an e-mail message to the admin. It took me quite
a while to figure out why I was getting these random error messages.
The problem is in modpython at around line 220:
for chunk in response:
If the client closes the connection during this loop, the write will
throw an exception. It is my belief that this code should include an
except clause to catch and discard EPIPE, since it's not a server
error when clients go away.
