Found out that the limitation is actually how much characters one can stuff
in between ``:

  $ echo "`cat HttpBody`" | wc -c

  $ cat HttpBody | perl -e '$s = <>; print length $s; print `echo $s`'

I.e., the echo works fine in my shell, but not ok under Perl.

Any way to increase the sys call length limitation, ie the limitation how
much characters one can stuff in between ``?
