Subject Re: ATS and TLS close-notify

Yes, ATS should respond with close notify or at least FIN the connection.
What version of ATS are you seeing this with?

If there was already an application data packet in flight, it may arrive
after the client sends the close notify. But in general ATS should shut
down the connection.
