Ah, well, I don't think I did more than about 10,000 requests against a
particular remote port on NT (I changed the server's listen port several
times to see if the problem with repeatable on a "fresh" port). I'll have
another go.

Oh yeah, good idea. I'll try that. I guess I could also get Apache NT to
listen on multiple ports and cycle through them (although I deliberately
avoiding used multiple listens in my recent tests, to avoid any problems
related to that).
