Yeah, I seem to have misunderstood the issue.  Even if the response wa
s an *invalid* one but it was huge data without \n, the readline call
would just explode.

- reading chunked response is doing a readline call too.

Both this need to be addressed by having a limit on reading.

I thought readline() is being called only when parsing headers which
should almost always have CRLF (or at least LF) and thought valid
responses always start with headers.
