The explanation for this is that ASP serializes requests to an ASP
(everything below a virtual root that is marked as being an application).
In theory it should only serialize requests within a Session, and
as ServerXMLHTTP does not carry the user's cookies it should not be an
issue for you, but...
So basically, ASP is waiting for your first .asp to finish to serve the XML
request, which causes the deadlock you're seeing.
