Please regard this comment seriously, it really contains information on how to fix 25266, 22072, 30301 and many other (NOT bogus) bugs under Apache SAPI.

From bug 25266 comment by

> the user or writing back data.

That is not true.

This link contains description and code (mod_perl) on how to detect disconnection without flushing data:

My untidy but WORKING solution was to add code given below to sapi_apache_flush function and call flush() function before connection_aborted() checks WITHOUT any output. Of course, it would be perfectly logical to add it to connection_aborted function itself, but I could not find any way to call SAPI-specific function from core.

Working code is:
int fd;
struct timeval tv = {0,0};
fd_set set;

if (server_context) {
    request_rec *r = SG(server_context);

    fd = ap_bfileno(r->connection->client, B_WR);

    if (fd >= 0) {
        FD_SET(fd, &set);
        if (select(fd + 1, &set, NULL, NULL, &tv) >= 0 && FD_ISSET(fd, &set))

PHP 5.3.3, Apache 2.2.15, CentOS 6.2 x86 - issue reproducible! I can't believe it! Bug persists 5 years. For me it's vital feature.
