One further data point. On two rhel5 systems with identical kernels,
both x86_64, both python-2.4.3... basically, everything I've thought to
check identical, I ran the test code with f.read() in an infinite loop.
One system only has one TCP socket in use at a time. The other one has
multiple TCP sockets in use, but they all close eventually.
