[ka-Map-users] IE broken images

I spoke a bit fast just now the broken images... After researching the
IE broken image problem for a _very_ long time, it just hit me what
could cause it.

Supposedly, the default value of the maximum number of connections to
one server in IE is set to 2. This is to comply with internet standards
(to help reduce loads on servers) That's what Microsoft claims. They say
you can increase it to ten, to allow you to download more than 2 files
from 1 server (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=282402). For some
reason, my computer has a value of 10,000. So did my colleagues. So it's
no wonder that IE caused my server to crash. The fix is documented in
the link I sent, but for simplicity sake:

Change value of MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server and MaxConnectionsPerServer
to something more decent (I use 5).

It fixes the problem straight away. Unfortunately, you can't really tell
all your visitors to hack their registry.... 

Why would our pc's have a default value of 10,000? That's ridiculously
I'll check with Microsoft on this....
