So... Joe... Did you discover causes for the slowness
you observed??? Seems to me that you made some
discoveries...  (Not sure this is strictly a httplib issue
as various Linux (not IE) folks chimed in on the thread).

Hi All,

I'd like to work on this issue:


Specifically, in my case, while IE can download a 150Mb file from a
local server in about 3 seconds, httplib takes over 20 minutes!

However, I'm kinda stumped on where to start with debugging the
difference. I've tried upping the buffer size as suggested in the
issue, but it's had no effect...

Any ideas?
