Your callback sends an EOF for every received EOF from the server. If
your server does the same, you end up with EOF ping pong. You might want
to check whether you already sent it before: channel->local_eof != 0

Btw, if you close the channel on your end, an EOF is sent automatically
if one has not been sent, yet.
