Hmm - here is probably a related problem which I never had the time to dig into:

The MCP patch requires that you start the $httpd server object in order to
connect to a WWW gateway. However I didnt find any way to check if that
start is done already or not. Moreover in my MOO I sometimes have to start
$httpd over after some time - I have the impression $httpd simply stops
listening after some time. Is there any way to find out if it is still
listening? Simply restarting it every hour just to make sure cannot be the
right way...
