Yes, fixed at two sessions. I think the worst thing is that the first
session will be blocked while the second session does its thing. Imagine
session 1 does the REPORT, then half way through reading the response,
we have to GET a 200Mb document. By the time the client has finished
that, the server may have timed out the REPORT request and aborted that
connection.

Maybe that would be okay, if the REPORT is then restarted correctly, and
doesn't have to do the 200Mb GET again. I guess that would work.

Each session would have to renegotiate authentication, which might be an
issue.

Anyway, I might try and implement this, because I can't update my
working copy until this bug is fixed! :) See how it goes...
