Test case

When HttpListener uses chunked transfer encoding and Write() with zero length is invoked on response stream, the zero-length chunk is sent over the network. This confuses the client as the zero length chunk means end of response. The attached example shows the problem. Just run the test in Mono and then run the shell script to make client call (uses Netcat). The respose is:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: Mono-HTTPAPI/1.0
Date: Fri, 31 Mar 2017 12:04:28 GMT
Transfer-Encoding: chunked
Keep-Alive: timeout=15,max=100



On Windows/.NET, it is correct:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Transfer-Encoding: chunked
Server: Microsoft-HTTPAPI/2.0
Date: Fri, 31 Mar 2017 12:16:19 GMT
