re: proxy server/tunnel

I am trying to write a program which acts as a tunnel, receiving browser requests and sending them on to the proxy server, and then 
sending the proxies replies back to the browser. All is going well, except when I get a site with huge amounts of images. I am testing 
with Opera as the web browser, and it contains an option to limit the number of connections. If this number is lower than the number of 
images on a page, then it loads only that number, and then sits.

I've read that with http/1.1 the browser can re-use a connection for further requests, so I suspect this is what might be happening, but I 
can't see why my program wouldn't be able to handle this, as it simply acts as an in-between, closing the connection only after the 
browser/proxy has already closed it.

If anyone has had similar problems, or knows what I'm doing wrong, I'd be really grateful for some help.
