Why do the time wait connections to google's 1e100 domain show as coming from root?
(Used the command
Code:
sudo netstat -t   -v -W -e -p -a | grep '1e100'
to generate above.)

They seem to stick around for a little bit after firefox closes.

Seems weird. Do all connections end up being managed by root at some level? Or is google doing something weird?
