Copied from #940 to consider this for 1.0.1.

This is a contrived example to illustrate the point:

app.Use(next => context =>
    if (context.Response.Body is MemoryStream)
        throw new Exception("Wrong stream type in context.Response.Body");

    context.Response.Body = new MemoryStream();

    return context.Response.WriteAsync("Hello, world!");

Run the application and browse to it. The first request returns nothing (content was written to the MemoryStream). Subsequent requests will hit the Exception.

The real-world case is when the Body stream is decorated for a given request. The decorator stream will be re-used for a subsequent request, which could result in re-decorating the stream, and ultimately produce a long chain of decorators.

It appears that Kestrel is trying to be efficient by re-using its underlying Stream instances. But the reusable instances are being replaced, with unintended consequences for future requests.

@muratg Should I close this? Or are we waiting for something before closing 1.0.1 issues?
