No, you should be able to kill off any and all requests at all times.

The latest public libwww is in 
Please try this release and see if you get the same problems. 

If that doesn't work, you could check the version of Winsock by adding a 
line to HTLibInit in HTLib.c

WSAStartup(..., &wsadata)
some checks
HTTrace("WinSock version \"%s\".\n", wsadata.szDescritpion);

Mail me back the information and I'll see what I can figure out.
