Ok, so I butchered Snap by replacing all of snap-server's killThread calls with putStrLn calls, and the putStrLn that is triggered by Snap.Internal.Http.Server.SimpleBackend's runSession (line 163 in snap-server 0.8.0.1) seems to be the culprit. Is that a rate limiter, or is that something else? Anyhow, I think there's a bug in there somewhere. I'll be poking at it a bit more, but that seems to be the top-level source of the errors.
