Download (untitled) / with headers

Hello. With libwww versions above 6.0 and Strawberry Perl 5.14 and 5.18 on Windows XP, any attempt to get jpg or any other image or binary file via https result in partially downloaded file, and I get different number of bytes of the same link every time I try it. But never the whole file. Problem solved by installing older verison of libwww, for example 5.837 Typical headers of this operation looks like this: HTTP/1.1 200 OK Date: Tue, 03 Dec 2013 20:32:14 GMT Accept-Ranges: bytes ETag: "031dd727cfce1:0" Server: Microsoft-IIS/8.0 Content-Length: 149607 Content-Type: image/jpeg Last-Modified: Tue, 22 Oct 2013 13:08:46 GMT Client-Aborted: die Client-Date: Tue, 03 Dec 2013 20:32:15 GMT Client-Peer: Client-Response-Num: 1 Client-SSL-Cert-Issuer: /C=GB/ST=Greater Manchester/L=Salford/O=COMODO CA Limited/CN=EssentialSSL CA Client-SSL-Cert-Subject: /OU=Domain Control Validated/OU=Free SSL/ Client-SSL-Cipher: RC4-SHA Client-SSL-Socket-Class: IO::Socket::SSL X-Died: read failed: Inappropriate I/O control operation at D:/perl/perl/vendor/lib/LWP/Protocol/ line 414.
