When data is posted by HTML, there's a single way to verify the content is complete: the content-length. But since PHP reinterpretes the incoming data, there's no way to verify the data in the $_POST variable reached the announced length. 
It would be a good idea to provide a superglobal variable that would flag an interrupted transmission.

Reproduce code:
any post code announcing more data than it really transmits and then closes the connection.
