No, that's a different problem, one which I thought I had avoided by
using flock. :)

*That* problem is a bunch of people doing accept() without any kind
of flock().

However, as I was dragging around my preforking proxy server from
machine to machine, it broke some places, but I can't recall where.
Hence, I switched to a different strategy.
