There's a good chance that's true -- httpap has a MaxConn option (500
in the config file in cvs) that says "reject the connection if there
are too many httpap processes currently".

Next time you get into this situation, killall the httpap's, start a
new one, and see if things are working again. (If so, then wait til we
get around to making Privoxy work. :)
