Well, it's not really leaking them.  As far as I can tell, the other end of the
socket isn't closing the connection, so Twisted just keeps it open 'cause
there's no timeout.  If there were a timeout, that would mean that proxying
certain things through HTTP might break.  What I'm wondering is why _other_
webservers don't suffer from this problem.  Do they have a timeout?  Is there
something else happening in Twisted that I'm missing?  This is certainly a very
frustrating bug to test for.  (After all, it's possible that this is some
impossibly obscure errno that we're not accounting for, too...)
