Hi Delano

I'm not sure why it's not working for you; it seems to work for me:

$ ./httperf --server=mysvr --print-request --add-header="X-Header: test\n"
httperf --print-request --client=0/1 --server=mysvr --port=80 --uri=/ --send-buffer=4096 --recv-buffer=16384 --add-header='X-Header: test\n' --num-conns=1 --num-calls=1
SH0:GET / HTTP/1.1
SH0:User-Agent: httperf/0.9.0
SH0:Host: mysvr
SH0:X-Header: test
SS0: header 75 content 0
Maximum connect burst length: 0

Total: connections 1 requests 1 replies 1 test-duration 0.011 s

I also tried it with the same options as you used, and that seemed to work for me as well.
