I think I know what's happening. Do a "netstat |grep twistd-web-pb".

If you have lots of connections to the same .twistd-web-pb, this is
because of a bug that was recently introduced to web.distrib, when
Jerub refactored it to use Woven. It stopped caching connections to
the personal web servers. :-( I fixed this in CVS yesterday. I will
try to get another alpha out soon.

Unfortunately, I think this bug made it into 1.0.7 :-(, although I'm
not sure.
