I believe your expectations are slightly off. Usually
ConnectionReuseStrategy implementations is expected to make a decision
whether or not the connection can be re-used based on the properties of
the response message passed as a parameter. NoConnectionReuseStrategy,
however, indiscriminately returns false in all cases regardless of
message composition, hence the problem you are facing. 

You should either manually add 'connection: close' header if connection
is not to be re-used and continue using DefaultConnectionReuseStrategy
or replace ResponseConnControl with a custom interceptor that always
adds 'connection: close' header.

Hope this helps
