 If you use SAFE_UNSERIALIZED_ACCEPT and a single socket then there's no
 accept() serialization so you wouldn't trigger a pthread mutex problem.
 I wonder if 1.3 fixes PR#1119.  1.3 again has different network behaviour
 over 1.2... and 1.2 certainly has different behaviour over 1.1. 
 I wonder if PR#1119 is related to the bug I've fixed in 1.3 that causes
 the last packet of a transfer to be delayed waiting for the hostname
 lookup to complete.  This bug, which I'd been considering a performance
 problem only, exists in 1.2 because of the changes to improve pipelined
 HTTP/1.1 connections.  It doesn't exist in 1.1 because 1.1 bflush()s all
 over the place. 
 I've cc'd the PR#1119 submitter... Jon could you try disabling
 HostnameLookups (or try 1.3b3) and see if the problem goes away?  If so
 I'll try to backport the fix from 1.3 to 1.2.
