Hi,

Try to put logic similar to one from HTReader_read(.. ) function that deals with
broken pine to HTWriter_write(..) function (instead of returning HT_ERROR from
HTReaded_read when broken pipe happens). Those functions are in HTReader.c and
HTWriter.c respectively.  

Also try to change code in HTTP.c function HTTPEvent(...) just before the w
hile loop from:


    } else if (type == HTEvent_RESET) {
        HTTPCleanup(request, HT_RECOVER_PIPE);
        http->state = HTTP_BEGIN; 
        return HT_OK;
    }
 

to:

    } else if (type == HTEvent_RESET) {
        HTTPCleanup(request, HT_RECOVER_PIPE);
        http->state = HTTP_RECOVER_PIPE;       /* HERE!!! */
        return HT_OK;
    }


The first change I have tried and it saves me from some broken pipes.
The second change I have not tried (did not have time) but it might work.
Please let me know it is does.
