Thank you for fixing that.

Hm.  I suppose that KeepAliveTimeout could be a bit higher, but
it seems to me that it's a bit unlikely to be the problem given
the symptoms I'm seeing - I've noticed that when I get a
connection reset it becomes impossible to connect to port 80 of
project.knowledgeforge.net for a couple of minutes afterwards,
either from JANET or from my home ADSL connection.

So that you have a time point to find in the logs when this
definitely happened, I set "git svn clone --stdlayout
http://knowledgeforge.net/ukparse/svn/" going earlier from the
client and got the connection reset by peer error [1]

I could connect to port 80 again at 13:01, but there were a
couple of minutes before that wwhere every connection attempt
from each network I tried failed.

I hope this is of some help in tracking down the problem.

many thanks,
