           Summary: Timeout in HttpWebRequest.GetResponse() due to use of
                    method HEAD

It seems that GetResponse() has issues with method HEAD. The problem appeared
when we tried to run Divan on Mono - it works fine on .Net 3.5/VSS2008.

This bug report in CouchDB explains that content-length header returned to a
HEAD request should be identical to a GET request of same URI. I suspect that
GetResponse() does not deal correctly with this and also, not sure how it deals
with missing content-length header returned.

The program attached shows the problem as timing out instead of returning a 404

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. gmcs Program.cs
2. mono Program.exe

Actual Results:  
Takes a long time, times out eventually.

Expected Results:  
Caused an exception fast.
