I've noticed that recent builds of Netsurf (3 over the last 2-3 days) seem
to exhaust my available network sockets sooner. Is anyone else finding this?
I'm currently on r6605, and up until about 3 days ago I could go weeks
without running out.
My usual usage is dialup, connecting for minutes at a time, then
disconnecting. I cycle through about a dozen regularly-visited sites,
including an active phpBB forum. Rinse, repeat. It's as if the newer builds
are behaving much the same as the older builds, but hit the socket threshold
just slightly sooner. So the same internet behaviour that used to be fine
(I'd hit the socket limit only every few weeks, on 'heavy usage days') is
now triggering the problem noticeably more often.
Time flies like an arrow, steers like a cow.
