Beware of the browse function in Browser, there is a connection leak in there 
as well, at least there was back in March or April.  Not sure if it has been 
fixed in the official repos.

I seem to recall the sockets getting put into some half-closed state, 
presumably when GHC GC'd them, eventually exhausting limits.  That may be 
particular to running on Linux, I guess.
