I've reported this to Netscape already. I've also pointed Rob McCool at it, who
said they were "looking into it". On ssl-talk Netscape acknowledged a bug with
keepalive and SSL but I don't know if this is really the same bug.

Anyway, any server doing keepalive and dropping connections from the server
end will cause the problem. Just wait until the server drops the connection
and the next request (to the same server) hangs.
