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.
