Description:
------------
Serving the test script below through the PHP built-in web server causes the server to hang. A response is never generated. This script works through mod_php. Once the server hangs, Ctrl-C is insufficient to quit. I am only able to quit using the kill command.

Test script:
---------------
<?php

header(' ', false, 200);

Expected result:
----------------
The web server should serve a response with a 200 status code.

Actual result:
--------------
Web server hangs. Requires killing with the kill command.

It hangs with 5.5 branch at least.
I guess built in server is trying to read inputs.
