SBCL - test were done under an older version (gosh, what was it back
last year?). I tried both serve-event and threads and AFAIR the threaded
version was rather brittle. The one thing a _can_ remember was a problem
that surfaced as a multi-value-bind that didn't get enough values
(i _think_ it was in the parsing of the request line - looked lik
araneida wanted to parse an empty string - but there's too much time
passed since then).

Not right now - and i do use it (without muc proxying) on a production
server (but on a rather marginal service). We did have a hanging instance
of araneida at monday (the first on the production box within a year)
but since i'm on the road i wasn't able to log in and debug (a simple
restart did solve the problem).
