"BaseHTTPServer + Browser sucking".

 * If you load an image, and then replace it (as OpenLayers does) it 
   saves the browser a lot of work
 * BaseHTTPServer treats all cases where the remote end closes the 
   connection as a Broken Pipe
 * BaseHTTPServer complains noisily about Broken Pipe exceptions.

In the end, they're nothing to worry about.
