— Unfortunately, Microsoft has added a clever new
  — “feature” to Internet Explorer.  If the text in
  — an error’s message is “too small”, specifically
  — less than 512 bytes, Internet Explorer returns
  — its own error message.  Yes, you can turn that
  — off, but *surprise* it’s pretty tricky to find
  — buried as a switch called “smart error
  — messages”  That means, of course, that many of
  — Resin’s error messages are censored by default.
  — And, of course, you’ll be shocked to learn that
  — IIS always returns error messages that are long
  — enough to make Internet Explorer happy.  The
  — workaround is pretty simple: pad the error
  — message with a big comment to push it over the
  — five hundred and twelve byte minimum.  Of course,
  — that’s exactly what you’re reading right now.
