Hi Andrew,

It wasn't blocked on IO, the server got stuck in it's mainloop (or similar
name). I don't know much about webservers, WSGIservers etc, but what i also
tried was putting a schedule() in this mainloop (which i think polls the
socket). Is this what you suggest? It seems to work well, apart from the
occasional weird AttributeError, which i'll have to look into. However
others discouraged this approach, but i never quite understood why.

Cheers, Lars
