I'm a bit perplexed about this... Obviously added some debugging info, but why we're getting No REQUEST_METHOD is perplexing. Is this a lack of an apache2 instance?

expecting success:
        NOT_FIT_IN_SSIZE=$(ssize_b100dots) &&
        env \
                CONTENT_TYPE=application/x-git-upload-pack-request \
                QUERY_STRING=/repo.git/git-upload-pack \
                PATH_TRANSLATED="$PWD"/.git/git-upload-pack \
                GIT_HTTP_EXPORT_ALL=TRUE \
                REQUEST_METHOD=POST \
                CONTENT_LENGTH="$NOT_FIT_IN_SSIZE" \
                yes | tr "y" "\\0" | git http-backend 2>err &&
        echo "Err is" &&
        cat err &&
        grep "fatal:.*CONTENT_LENGTH" err

Status: 500 Internal Server Error
Expires: Fri, 01 Jan 1980 00:00:00 GMT
Pragma: no-cache
Cache-Control: no-cache, max-age=0, must-revalidate

Err is
fatal: No REQUEST_METHOD from server
not ok 15 - CONTENT_LENGTH overflow ssite_t

Cheers,
