Subject: fatalsToBrowser message in MSIE

In CGI::Carp, there is this line: # MSIE won't display a custom 500 response unless it is >512 bytes! followed by a defense against that bug. It is nested in an "if ($mod_perl) {" block, but this is true whether one is using mod_perl or not. I think the defense should be outside of the mod_perl check. I have made this change locally, and it did solve the problem.
