4.6 is only RC yet but I already got support requests on #drupal-support
and at various Hungarian places about "admin/settings not displayed".
Apparently, opening sockets is not a clean business. It has various
problems in BSD jails, Windows boxes and who knows where else.
I pray on my knees -- do not release 4.6 with the current test in
admin/settings. It will be a support nightmare.
My patch tries to load a random named gif which is of course a Drupal
page which sets clean_url_ok to 1 and prints the 42 bytes required for

When AJAX hits the core, we will be able to check whether the request
is OK or not. For now, we can only check after submit.

+1 for the functionality.  With the image as it is, there's a large
empty space above the Clean URLs section.  I'm attaching a patch that
moves the image below that section and reduces the size to 1px by 1px. 
I'm not entirely happy with the inline styles on the image.  They should
probably be moved to drupal.css.

Inline style is OK according to steven and factoryjoe. Huge negative
