in thread IO::Socket::SSL is not downloading full data from HTTPS URL in Windows ActiveState Perl.

Hi noxxi

I had already applied the patch from https://github.com/libwww-perl/net-http/pull/11. Before that the script2 was not even running, it failed with timeout. After patch applied, You can see the script2 completes ($browser->status is success) but not downloaded the data properly.

I see the same behavior in Windows + Active Perl 5.14, 5.16, 5.18 and 5.20. I have been suffering this problem for past 3 years :(. I thought to find a root so i can use the default IO::Socket::SSL.

Thanks & Regards,

    Unfortunately I can not reproduce the problem. Neither with Strawberry Perl, nor with the latest ActiveState Perl. Did you also apply https://github.com/libwww-perl/libwww-perl/pull/66, which fixes the non-blocking handling on Windows for the libwww part?
