afaik, mini_httpd doesnt keep session states. and in all cases, once a
connection is handled (either by returning the output of the php script,
gif/jpeg image or html file), the connection is close(2)d. IE should not
be having established sessions.

i do know however that IE will pull a dirty trick of not going thru a
proper TCP 3-way handshake if it detects an IIS as the web server it's
connecting to. could IE be misdetecting mini_httpd as IIS and thus somehow
borking the tcp state of mini_httpd on m0n0wall ? (it's highly unlikely,
but it's also 3am here and i'm a little groggy)
