> Define "nuke-the-world"

Drop DNS cache? Kill all open sockets in a vain attempt to get Android to switch us to the new network interface? Shutdown and restart necko?

From a black-box perspective, it looks like Gecko is hanging on to some stale resource, waiting for a timeout (or worse, not timing out).

Nuke the world would mean discarding any persistent resource that the network stack uses, reacquiring through the normal first-use process.

A similar behavior sometimes even happens when you get the "you are not connected" error page. The Try Again button is useless about 80% of the time, even though I am quite happily browsing Facebook on the network connection that Firefox insists doesn't exist. Probably that's just due to the network state listener not being right, but who knows?
