Hi
	When issue a httpc request such as httpc:request(get, {"http://www.sina.com.cn", [{"cookie",undefined}]}, [], []), the httpc_handler process who handle the request will crash and the caller will hang forever by waiting for  the response. I believe it would be better to return an error here, so I've committed a patch for it.

	git fetch git://github.com/RYTong/otp.git inets-httpc-patches

	and the compare view is under:
