The issue of how to deal with restart processes when one thread is stuck
serving a long-lived request.  That was the major reason for not releasing
2.0.18 as a beta AFAICR.  I posted a design that solves the problem, but
then other issues got in the way of implementing it.  I started the patch
last Friday, and if I can find a few hours to devote to it, I should have
a patch this week sometime.
