Well, my guesses would explain the behavior (not that it's correct, but it 
might be mistaken for "correct" in someone's twisted thinking).  I'd love 
to know if a Windows box ever sets up more than one TCP connection to the 
server, or if it really does use only one TCP connection for all 

I don't know if I have the equipment to test this yet...
