And unfortunately,  this patch doesn't help my problem.  I'm using the
library in,  I believe, passive mode.  I register the file descriptor
from the net information with Xt and have a callback to handle the
input.  In this situation,  www doesn't crash,  but it obnoxiously
closes the file descriptor without telling me,  and it doesn't follow
the redirect.  All in all I'm screwed by this.
