This was what I was trying to find out by asking the list.
I have also spent an hour or two walking through the source
in yaws_server.erl, and I must say that it's very difficult
to see how it could happen.

Also, since yaws reuses processes constantly, and each 
acceptor follows the same pattern of 'resetting' the 
environment each time, you'd think that it would be a 
fairly commonly observed bug.
