This is the symptom of a different keepalive problem with Netscape. Are
these pages very small (under 1024 bytes) and are you on a fast local
network? If so, you may be running into the problem where if Navigator
reads the entire body of the entity in the same read as the headers, it
won't recognize keepalive status. We added the fflush() to stop this from
happening, but on a very fast network, it still can sometimes.
