      Description

      Some web servers are misconfigured and do not return correctly formed 404 errors; the 404 is returned as an HTML page but the status code of the HTTP reply is not set. This causes the Java networking stack to become confused and the Java Plug-In to attempt to define a class with the contents of the 404 HTML page, which causes the JavaScript/Java bridge to break and the browser to hang.
