It's hard to diagnose the problem from your description. A simple test case 
that reproduces the problem would be helpful.

This doesn't tell us very much. It's a little like saying a Java application 
hangs when main() is called, or that a servlet hangs when service() is 
called--that's where all the action is.

As you may have seen, I just fixed a problem there. Grab the latest nightly, 
or if you're in a hurry, just set add a
system property to your invocation of HttpClient and it should work as you 
expect. The SimpleLogger also works.

Try the httpclient.wirelog category as a starting point, this should tell 
you what HttpClient is reading and writing from the stream.
