Well, I don't know if this is related, but I do experience an issue with
keep-alive and mod_python (although, I just assumed it was firefox's
problem, even though I don't get that bug with anything but firefox).
Basically, on some keep-alive requests, firefox gives me the HTTP
headers and other stuff and renders that as text instead of the actual
page.  Most likely, this is related to your keep-alive bug, since this
only happens _after_ the first request in a keep-alive request.
