That was the only patch to the list.

Hmm. Apparently the second scoreboard update in http_main.c is not tabulating
keepalives, then. But the status page is only a single connection, and
Netscape 2.x, at least, seems to prefer opening a second or third connection
to using a keepalive, at least at the default connection setting of 4.

OK, then. That's how I ran them, and that's what they showed. I see 5-10
as a count in the first column on a pretty large number of connections
here, and > 1 on about 7% of active connects.

You can do this by reverting to the original http_main.c or reversing
that part of the patch. The scoreboard slot total *is* the total for the
child, though, since that count is cleared when a server dies.
