Several tests abort with

Could not parse chunk header
  in method parse_chunks at lib/LWP/Simple.pm:177
  in method make_request at lib/LWP/Simple.pm:215
  in method request_shell at lib/LWP/Simple.pm:63
  in method post at lib/LWP/Simple.pm:32
  in block  at t/custom-headers-and-content.t:10

The reason for that is that parse_headers doesn't get the entire headers list, but only the first thing that came from read():

$ g diff | cat
diff --git a/lib/LWP/Simple.pm b/lib/LWP/Simple.pm
index 4e1963c..e0f9713 100644

     my Int $header_end_pos = 0;

Result with the patch above:

$ perl6 -Ilib t/custom-headers-and-content.t

Headers end with "byt" rather than CRLF, so parse_headers cries and dies.
