Description:
------------
When more than one output buffers are chained together, and the client requests the page via HEAD, the inner-most output buffer won't pass on the buffer contents to the next buffer after modifying its code.  It seems to send a null string. It works fine with a PUT request.

Reproduce code:
---------------
<?php 
function contentLength($html)
{
	header('Content-Length: ' . strlen($html));
	return ($html);
}
ob_start("contentLength");
function fix_code($buffer)
{
	return(str_replace(" />", ">", $buffer));
}
ob_start("fix_code");
?>
<html><head>
<title>Bug</title>
</head><body>
<p>there is a bug</p>
</body></html>

----------------
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
