Sorry for bombarding you with lot of little issues.
I have the following scenario where post_action is for some reason not
being called in all cases. This scenario runs around several thousand
times an hour:
1. A request comes in, verified, a session is then added to db -
session_id passed in header, X-Accel-Redirect is being set
2. A file is sent to the user
3. post_action is used to delete the session using the session_id and do
I noticed after some time that not all sessions were deleted, meaning,
post_action did not run in all cases.
From a short look at the ngx_http_finalize_request function, there are
several cases where post_action might not be called, however, it's hard
for me to say if these cases can happen.
