I have said this a dozen times before.  I am getting tired of saying it. 
You don't seem to acknowledge the fact that the socket may not be closed
on the client when you send the data but it may be partly closed on the
server by the time it arrives at the server.

I explained this in detail.  I'm not sure what else I can say.  Discussing
the issues is good.  The problem is that you are giving nothing to
discuss but just reiterating a statement that you "should just be able to
check this" ignoring all the reasons why you can't.
