There seems to be an interaction between pound-1.9's ssl and current
I only have seen this in https, using pound-1.9, and using the current
firefox browser. It shows up as excruciating slowness when making
multiple requests, i.e., a web page with images, where the secondary
requests come in very slowly. ZMI takes many seconds to load.
My work-around (I'm using Gentoo unstable, so openssl, etc., are
current) is to go back to pound-1.8.3, where this does not happen. 1.9
works fine with konqueror, and I don't think this was happening with
pound-1.9 and Firefox 1.0.4. I did not test IE.
