  And the server will likely core dump.

  The "finished" flag is used also as a "it's OK to free() the
request" flag.  If the thread is still accessing it, it's a SEGV.

  The solution is to take those "dead" requests, and move them to a
*separate* list, which is cleaned up periodically.  That way old
requests don't prevent new ones from coming in.
