I've done some more debugging.  I think I was right, the thread that  
calls client.execute is blocked, waiting in  
MultiThreadedHttpConnectionManager.doGetConnection (which is called  
by MultiThreadedHttpConnectionManager .getConnectionWithTimeout,  
called by HttpMethodDirector.executeMethod).

The timeout value would appear to be the default of 0 (since I didn't  
configure that in any way), which appears to mean no timeout, which  
explains why the QueuedExecutor handling my transfer commands is  

 From the looks of things (please correct me if I'm wrong) even if I  
set a timeout value it would just result in client.execute method  
throwing a connection pool timeout exception instead of having the  
connection pool re-stock itself with new connections.

Is this the intended behavior of abort(), or should it be notifying  
the connection manager so it can clean up and keep the connection  
pool stocked?

Thanks again for your help,
