New submission from Dhiraj:

When Python Server receives a string of '/xff' (5 or more) from a page  after completing a handshake, the tab immediately crashes.  There are variations of this string with other characters mixed in that also cause an immediate close of python server.

To reproduce:

1. Run the websockets.py server 
2. Then open websockets.html in browser 

The PY server gets Close/Crash
