I made the server close the connection right after sending but it did  
not make much of a difference. On Mac OSX 200 out of 500 connection  
requests are refused.

With the C server 1,000 connections are accepted easily and within a  
second or two. With Erlang the most we got is 500 connections on  
Solaris and that's with a large connection timeout.
