If you are wondering why WEBrick responds to your XMLHttpRequest from Mozilla 1.7 with:
ERROR bad Request-Line `'
then read this message by prototype's author Sam Stephenson: http://lists.rubyonrails.org/pipermail/rails/2005-March/004703.html
Not surprisingly prototype includes the workaround while, unfortunately (for me), dojo doesn't.
This post in the hope that it took you less than me to discover this.
