No it's definately not the case.  It's the opposite.  When keepalives are
turned on you require usually four processes per client, and they stick
around doing nothing until the next request or timeout.  I'm surprised you
see the same behaviour with a timeout of 3 seconds though... you didn't

Do you know if timeouts are broken?  Try this:

telnet myserver 80
GET / HTTP/1.0
Connection: keep-alive

Don't forget the extra CRLF there at the end... and then wait after the
response, and time it to see that it closes after your keepalive timeout.
