TCP sessions hanging in FIN_WAIT_1?

I've been testing CURRENT for a bit and with a thousands of short  
lived HTTP sessions, CURRENT hangs most of the sessions in FIN_WAIT_1  
status until the machine runs out of resources and causes the network  
stack to stop performing.  The HTTP daemon I am playing with is  
lighttpd-1.4.13, and I don't see this happening on any of the 6.2  
test machines I run.

There's nothing unusual about the build other than the interface card  
running the mxge driver.  Has anyone else seen reports of this?  I  
have seen this behavior on all source up to today's tree.
