Hmmm. Slick. Hadn't thought of that. I would have thought that apache/php
had a way of terminating script processing if the connection drops (they
have a way to terminate script processing if it takes too long! :) ). But
if the script takes <30s anyway, you're probably fine on average setup.

Neither is impacted. In the new function spawn_pinger(), we use
fsockopen to start a new thread via HTTP. AFAIK it's the only
platform-independent way to do this without involving the user agent.
