 i think your problem is caused by the XmlTextReader behaviour. Or it
 is at least under MS .NET. Look at this Thread:

+describes it well (though in my case it wasn't 4k but only 1k with
+Mono), but I am not sure it is the same problem as this one.
+I think because XmlTextReader only calls the underlying stream's Read
+function, my problem comes back right away to your StreamReader bug
+report. If StreamReader (based on a NetworkStream) would return
+immediately like MS .NET if no more data is available (which in case
+of a network stream may well be before all data is received and I
+think this is where the actual problem has risen from conceptionally),
+this would not be an issue. 
+In the case of http://xmlrpccs.sourceforge.net I now fixed the problem
+by copying the contents of the network stream (lenght is known because
+of the Content-Length field of the POST request) into a string and
+using this as the buffer to read from (in which case the end of stream
+is recognizable).
