Yeah, it's one of the things that needs cleaning up, but I don't  
think that's causing the problem.

X-Actual-Host is used in debugging problems. It lets us know which  
server actually fielded the request when hitting the load balancer.

I tried to use tcpdump to see this, but got useless results. Clearly  
I don't know how to call it.

sudo tcpdump -i lo0  -qA

didn't really work for me. I got mostly periods, and what little  
recognizable text did appear didn't seem to be complete (in this case  
I'm running the server and Safari on the same machine).

Fairly sure, but it's not clear to me why this would make a  
difference. Other browsers/feed readers seem to have no problem.
