That's why I was wondering above why requests were serialized although they
were not in the same session. Sorry if my English wasn't crystal clear.
Perhaps I should have said "ASP serializes requests to _your_ application",
as that was what he was seeing.
I had not thought of the debug flag, and _that_ indeed serializes requests
application-wide, which explains the observed behavior. Thanks for
clearing up the mystery.
