in reply to Large HTTPS POST hangs with HTTP::Daemon::SSL

Hi guys,

I'm the current maintainer of HTTP::Daemon::SSL which I took over from Peter Behroozi to apply some patches back in 2007.

I see the problem, and I can't think of any smart alternatives at the moment. I don't like the idea of HTTP::Daemon::SSL not supporting timeouts since it is then not a full drop in replacement for HTTP::Daemon, but it's obviously better than a big bug such as this.

So unless I (or others on this thread) have any genius ideas in the near future, I'll:

1. add a test for the large post issue;
2. add a TODO test for the timeout feature; and
3. disable the timeout feature.

Better ideas welcome!
