NETREAD hangs when loading URL that sets cookie.

I have a problem that is driving me nuts.

I'm running version 5.2.1 of libwww (I have also tried this on a
snapshot of CVS that I downloaded
yesterday) on a Solaris 2.5.1 machine.

When I do a POST (problem also occurs when doing a GET) against a HTTP
1.0 server, and a Set-Cookie header is returned, libwww hangs in the
NETREAD call in HTReader.c

The problem doesn't occur if the Set-Cookie header isn't returned, and
the problem doesn't occur
when talking to a newer 1.1 server.

When running non-preemptively, then libwww hangs in a select and it
looks like the server is returning the URL correctly.

I have tried setting connection mode to HTTP_FORCE_10 and it hasn't made
a difference.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
