Actually, I just found that this is defined in
the RFC (probably to prevent DOS attacks):

8.2.2 Monitoring Connections for Error Status Messages

     "An HTTP/1.1 (or later) client sending a
message-body SHOULD monitor the network connection
for an error status while it is transmitting the
request. If the client sees an error status, it
SHOULD immediately cease transmitting the body. If
the body is being sent using a "chunked" encoding
(section 3.6), a zero length chunk and empty trailer
MAY be used to prematurely mark the end of the
message. If the body was preceded by a Content-Length
header, the client MUST close the connection."

     If this is not the current behaviour of the
HttpCli component, then perhaps we can work in
implementing this.
