Adam Kocoloski closed COUCHDB-730.

    Fix Version/s: 0.11.1

CouchDB never used lhttpc.  It used the inets http client for a time.  Thanks for the patch.

> MochiWeb closes a request connection if the headers indicate the presence of a body with
non-zero length but the body is never read by the application. Couch sends a body with the
atom "true" in a POST to _ensure_full_commit before saving replication checkpoints, but a
remote Couch will not read this body. As a result, MochiWeb closes the request and all pipelined
requests for this host must be retried by couch_rep_httpc / ibrowse.
> I don't know if the body = true was a holdover from a quirk with an older MochiWeb, lhttpc
(didn't couch used to use this?) or something else, but simply removing it does the trick.
> Patch attached.
