Unaccounted memory usage...

Just an interesting note, R9B-0 on Windows XP with the same test
case uses 24 MB, peak memory.

Odd how the Linux code uses so much, but the Windows code doesn't.

Of course, Windows didn't have a large enough backlog on the socket
with {backlog, 5} to handle more than 64 simultaneous incoming
connections (Linux did).  :(

  You'll feel much better once you've given up hope.
