>Description:
The timeout alarm in http_main.c seems to have a race condition that
causes current_conn to be lost (i.e. set to nil).

>How-To-Repeat:
Start any html page then kill the browser, while loading the page,
with the local window manager.
>Fix:
I added the following line to http_main.c in subroute timeout():

diff http_main.c http_main.c.orig
359d358
<     current_conn = timeout_req->connection;

Seems to prevent the core dumps, but I'm not sure if there are any
side-effects..
