It happens when Outlook connects to Exchange, closes the connection and then
reconnects. I didn't trust wininet either and wrote a standalone test to mimic
the consecutive connects. It showed that wininet is right in reusing the
connection, though I didn't perform any reads or writes.

You say that reuse depends on reaching end of stream, so this might actually
be a variation of the other bug, which is that in chunked mode we can't know
whether we reached end of stream.
