I am seeing this both in my own project and when running node test/test-changes.js

node test/test-changes.js 

        throw e; // process.nextTick error, or 'error' event on first tick
Error: socket hang up
    at createHangUpError (http.js:1107:15)
    at Socket.<anonymous> (http.js:1210:27)
    at Socket.emit (events.js:88:20)
    at Array.0 (net.js:320:10)
    at EventEmitter._tickCallback (node.js:192:40)

ended having to rebuild my system on the weekend. Will try looking into this ASAP


i have the same problem. how can i fix it?


@kirrg001 I have since switched to which has a simpler API in my opinion, and it did not demonstrate the problem. However, I also updated my couchdb to the latest version, so if you want to continue using this library, you could try updating couchdb.


Do you have any sample code I can use to reproduce this?


@mcoolin it happened to me when I ran the tests. I can try pulling down the latest and see if it still happens.


Thanks gives me a place to start looking. Let me know if the latest still breaks, I'll look at a fix tonight.
