fair load balancing?

I'll admit I'm completely knew to Perlbal, but I don't understand how  
verify_backend will work here.

I just ran Perlbal up last week, proxying http requests to Mongrel app  
I had "SET verify_backend  = on" in my config file.

I still saw long-requests blocking subsequent requests.

Am I misunderstanding something?
