I think I found a bug in the cassandra PHP client.  I'm using phpcassa, but
the bug is in thrift itself, which I think that library phpcassa just
wraps.  In any case, I was trying to test on my local machine, which has
limited RAM, so I reduced the JVM heap size.  Of course I immediately had an
OOM causing my local cassandra server to crash, but that caused my unit
tests to stall at 100% CPU, which seemed weird to me.  I had to figure out
why.  It seems that TSocket doesn't test for EOF (it's only checking for a
socket timeout), causing a tight infinite loop when the connection
disappears.  Checking for EOF in an else if seems like an easy fix, but
given how deep this code is in the library I'll leave it to the experts.
