 Replying to [comment:4 Denis-de-Bernardy]:
 > I can easily picture a plugin overriding headers after an output buffer
 gets started or something similar. The patch exits too early.

 I thought the same thing, but I was wrong. The exit()ing is not part of
 the patch, but already in the code. Also, there is a filter, called
 'wp_headers' that a plugin can hook into.
