I'm using 4.1.2 as an Apache module, with the latest 1.x apache on FreeBSD 4.5.

I open a remote server with fsockopen('', 80)), then fwrite() to it , which works fine.  A problem I noticed is when the remote server (apache) closes the connection (for instance, if I send Connection: close in the HTTP header).  If I then fwrite() to the socket, fwrite reports the number of bytes written.  However, nothing comes out the other end, of course.  Shouldn't fwrite be returning -1 ?  Also, I run is_resource() on the socket, which also returns true.  

Is this expected behavior, or a bug?
