 We have an integration test where we start two separate Django processes
 and the second process makes a POST request to the first process with the
 requests library. This testcase broke once we upgraded to Django 1.11,
 while it still worked in Django 1.10.

 To reproduce the issue:

 - Create a simple Django app.
 - Install selenium and requests
 - Add a testcase like so:

 import time

 from django.contrib.staticfiles.testing import StaticLiveServerTestCase
 from django.urls import reverse
 from selenium import webdriver

 class TestExample(StaticLiveServerTestCase):
     def test_example(self):
         driver = webdriver.Chrome()
         driver.get(self.live_server_url + reverse('admin:index'))
         # wait "forever"
         time.sleep(60 * 60 * 24)

 I.e it just opens the admin page, then waits for 24 hours. In a Python
 console, type the following:

 import requests

 and you will see that the request hangs indefinitely. Interestingly, it
 sometimes helps to press refresh in the Chrome window spawned by Selenium.
