I think there is a misunderstanding. The patch sets a flag to 0x2 for unwanted streams (saying something like "request to disable that stream"). From my experience many servers do not treat this correctly.
Instead of sending "request to disable that stream" nothing should be sent to the server for these IMHO.

I didn't actually test, but I am almost certain it won't fix that problem.
