Comment(by mikeperry):

 I swear I've seen keep-alive connections sometimes survive new-identity in
 the past, but I am unable to reproduce this on the latest TBB.

 I will add the patch anyway, though, just in case. Firefox does it upon
 entrance into private browsing mode, so we probably should do it too.
