TLS version 0.3.1
fixes several related bugs in the secure webserver, where the server

The most common occurrence of this situation is when the client browser
displays a warning that the secure site is not fully trusted, and the
user opts to cancel. Previously, the listening thread would remain

connection is properly cancelled.
