OK.  It doesn't happen here at work on Windows boxes, but I can try it this weekend on my linux box at home.
 
Have you by any chance tried other clients beside IE-on-Windows?  I'll only be able to test it with Linux browsers at home.

It doesn't happen to me, and like you, I get a lot of error pages :-)

Subject: [Webware-discuss] WebKit Error traceback pages don't close their connection?

When I get an error traceback page (it happens a lot, I make a lot of mistakes), it seems like the HTTP connection doesn't get closed.  The symptoms I see are that the traceback page loads, down to the end (I think), where the IDs print, but the IE "globe" keeps spinning until I press the Stop button on the browser.

When I request the /Examples/Error servlet via urllib in a Python script, it hangs at the point of retrieving the page. If I press Ctrl-C, there's nothing in the output file.

Any words of advice about what's going on and how I could fix it?  I'm trying to write a cheesy automatic test for a servlet page that will simply look for the presence of the traceback.  What I'm doing as a workaround is assuming that no page will take more than 30 seconds to load (browser and servlet on the same network), and handling an alarm if the timeout is exceeded.

I appreciate any advice or pointers to information you can provide.

Thanks.  By the way, the fancy traceback is a great boon for us--much easier than finding and tailing a logfile.

Cheers!
