Thank you.  I've become confident that the cause of the problem
is because the server does not respond at the end of POSTed data.

It is normal because the DeleGate is waiting the response from the
server and without the response the DeleGate cannot go forward.

You must inspect the hanging process rather than the main process
of DeleGate, the pid is 10341 in this case.

By the way, the enclosed patch, which repaces the copyfile() function
with four lines of code with informational loggin, might change your
