Hmm.  The goal was that if the application explicitly sets a connection
header (Connection: close), MHD should obey that choice and not override
it in any way (and close the connection after the request).  I'm also pretty
positive there is code that does that check; however, if it fails for you,
I'd certainly appreciate a test.

What is not possible right now is to force MHD to not generate any
header; that'd need an API extension.  But, try adding "Connection:
close" first,
and if that somehow fails to show up properly on the wire, please send a
and I'll be happy to take a close look at it.

Happy hacking!
