Description Demis Bellot 2011-12-20 04:44:13 UTC
There is a bug when trying to return a 201 response where the Connection isn't closed properly since there is no Content-Length or Connection: Close to mark the end of the response.

In my brief scan around the Mono source code, this may be the problem:

Here's a wireshark example of the offending Request/Response. 
Note: there is no combination of Response.Flush() / Response.Close() / Response.CloseOutputStream() I can do on my side to change the behaviour.

(If you want to replicate the bug go to: http://www.servicestack.net/ServiceStack.MovieRest/ and try to Add a new movie - no callbacks are fired because Chrome doesn't know the response has completed).
