    ahhh...distant bells are ringing on this one. I believe we had a
    similar problem before that was caused by exactly the same thing AOL
    pipelining requests.

    I'll investigate this route and let you know how I get on.

    No info on whether re-splicing based on cookie is a feature to be added
    at some point?
