It happened under very low load, me as a single user during
development, and the page having maybe a ten to twenty resources to
load (css, images, scripts). I always assumed the http client didnt
have protocols inside that selective receive for the right reply could
work well enough on. Didnt look much into it since i worked around it
in other ugly ways, and nowday favour ibrowse over the otp http
client.


Another source of failure to inspect for you guys is that yaws
actually reuses processes. Maybe things can leak between requests in
the process registry, or in the process mailbox.
