Hi Alex,

I'm getting an odd behaviour, perhaps because of a mis-configuration at 
the Apache level....

I run a few tests with cURL, and I noticed that when using the HTTP 
header 'Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate' (note: this is sent by Firefox), 
your Apache server returns a 401 without content. Without that header, I 
get the content from EPrints as expected. I think this comes from Apache 
because the format of the 401 response doesn't look like EPrints'.

Check if you have mod_deflate (responsible for gzip/deflate) in your 
Apache/httpd conf, if so, disable it & try again.

Seb.
