  It *can* do post-proxy in the master thread.  But only if it’s single threaded.

  When it’s single threaded.

  In normal cases, it runs the proxy reply back through the thread queue.  Where a child thread picks it up.

  You should be able to test this by looking at the current thread ID.  If it’s the same as the master thread, it’s a problem.
