I think you're right. I can't think of a reason that c.close()
shouldn't be called. After all, if there's an error, then the
connection is either already dead, or should be.
I haven't checked the HtHTTP code for this, but this is a concern.
I'm going to turn in early tonight, but we should get a patch for the
3.1.x tree for this and see if it helps. It seems like we might want
to roll a 3.1.4 release together fairly soon.
Monday, I'll post a TODO for 3.2.0b1, and perhaps 3.1.4 as well.
