Cool.  The XP thing is very specific to EXACTLY how the application or the
server daemon uses windows sockets, in combination with significant data
exchange [e.g. http GET might not trigger it, while either http POST or SSL
negotiation might.  In fact, POST+SSL seems like the most lethal combination
when sockets are used in a BSD-like mode.]

I'd suggest applying the afd.sys fix first to the server, then to the 
client, and
testing out an unpatched XP Mozilla 1.0RC3 client against a patched XP
httpd server [we know Apache/httpd has this issue.]  If the bug remains for
the client on an unpatched XP box, it's definately worth bringing to the 
of the Mozilla folks.  This could also expedite adopting the patch with XP 
if it isn't already scheduled for inclusion and the window is still open.
