I might be dumb but I don't know what you're talking about. We had a
irc discussion about threading and deadlocks, and a discussion on this
ML, the thread "Getting stuck in stream_Read()", but in both cases...
you didn't say that is was wrong to use HTTP access in a
stream_filter, and you did not (a fortiori) provide a solution.

I probably missed something...

Ok so we are doomed :-)
