I have a situation where apache (apache2-2.2.17-4.5.1.x86_64) is configured as
reverse proxy with rewrite rules enabled as frontend of a site.

I would like to add deflate and a ext_filter to the stream.

The configuration have been validated on the old production installation where
all is working.

I declared the extfilter:
<IfModule mod_ext_filter.c>
ExtFilterDefine oldcim-2-newcim mode=output \
intype=text/html outtype=text/html \


and defined the filter chain:
SetOutputFilter oldcim-2-newcim;DEFLATE

and obviously defined the other parameters.

The problem is that if I chain the 2 filters, the browser show only strange
characters (probably the compressed stream without the header declaration (?))
while If I use two filter separately I don't have any problem.

If I define also a filter with a trailing ";" I have tha same behaviour:
SetOutputFilter DEFLATE;

Reproducible: Always
