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

The latest public libwww is in 
ftp://ftp.w3.org:/pub/libwww/w3c-libwww-4.1b5.[tar.Z|tar.gz|zip]
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.
