[libmicrohttpd] MHD_CONNECTION_OPTION_TIMEOUT seems not to work with MHD_create_response_from_callback

Although it's not easy to reproduce, it seems that using connection
option MHD_CONNECTION_OPTION_TIMEOUT when streaming data with
MHD_create_response_from_callback seems not to work, although.
In my application with MHD underneath where the problem occurs, I
provide a webradio, which is a http stream with unlimited size.
The problem I have is when the client uses a bad wifi connection, or
when the client moves too far from the wifi antenna, then the client
device detects the connection is wrong, therefore closes it, but on the
server side, the connection remains open and never closes, leading to
If I use MHD_OPTION_CONNECTION_TIMEOUT in MHD_start_daemon, this
partially fixes the problem, the server automatically closes the
connection after the mentionned seconds of total inactivity from the
client (i.e. the client is not reading the stream anymore but keeps the
connection open), but it doesn't fix the problem for bad connections.
I'm attaching a simple example that I used to be able to reproduce the
problem, but I couldn't find a way to reproduce it with a client
program. Maybe by using netem but I'm not familiar with this command.
