        Pretty much fixed here. I've been working hard with Michael O'Reilly
to make async more stable. We now have a production stable version going
however we are waiting for beta13 to send in our patches against as we are
so far ahead (sent in 6 major patches already) that we fear things may go
awry (with the repatched patches problem).

        I have already sent in a drop-in replacement for aiops.c which fixes
the thread-pool inefficiency. A thread pool is now maintained by squid itself
and kept hot for fast async transactions. This should be there in beta13.
