HTTP header problem causeing "Downloading picture..." bug in IE6

I have a page designed to move a JPG image around inside a smaller window.  This page works fine in FireFox and IE6 when accessed via local hard disk or via IIS.

I have a small webserver (coded in C) built to host files out.  When I use this webserver to host the files, FireFox works perfectly.  IE6 displays "Downloading picture..." every time I move the JPG image around.

I have verified with a packet analyzer that IE6 is not communicating with the server when it displays this, but it prevents the JPG image from moving for 2 seconds.

I believe that the only difference between IIS and my webserver is the HTTP headers that are sent.  Do you know what HTTP headers could cause this to occur?

You might try giving the Content-Length header parameter -- that could be why there's a delay from IE6 in download.
