The webbot example program hangs after a brief period of normal
operation; typically after 50-100 "outstanding requests" have piled
up.  This happens on sun and digital; compiled with gcc on the sun and
cc on the digital:

	- SunOS 5.5.1 Generic_103640-20 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-2      
	- OSF1 V4.0 878 alpha

This behaviour occurs with any starting URI however the number of
"outstanding requests" which accumulate differs depending on the site.

I *must* be doing something wrong.  Can someone kindly point me in the
right direction?

Some clues:

Robot....... done with http://www.seas.upenn.edu/history.html
             54 outstanding requests
