Sample of the hang

This is bizarre -- the hang appears to be due to CFNetwork doing work on the main thread that is blocked waiting on the disk cache to shrink in a background thread.  Even weirder is that there are two CFURLCacheWorkerThreads.  This may be a bug in CFNetwork that recent changes in WebKit now tickle.
