Windows XP Pro SP1 with FireFox 0.9

Once 4 connections have been made through a proxy (ie with downloads) further
connections are blocked until there are less than 4 current connections. 
Connections not going through a proxy are not affected.  The only knob I can
find to twiddle is network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy and
changing that makes no difference.

Under 0.8 this problem didn't occur and it doesn't occur under Mozilla 1.7.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FireFox 0.9
2. Configure a proxy
3. Launch 4 downloads, through a proxy.
4. Try to launch a 5th, or connect to any web site through the proxy.

Actual Results:  
Step (4) blocked until one of the downloads ended.

Expected Results:  
There should be the ability to increase this limit, particularly as it doesn't
occur under 0.8 or Mozilla 1.7.

Ok, strangely, this problem has stopped happening (though I've not tried 0.9.1 
yet).  I didn't change anything in the config (yeah, I know - everybody says 
that), but it started allowing more than 4 connections.

I'll just chalk it up to the gremlins :)
