Good news... it appears the latest version of PEN overcomes this problem.
This is one great load balancer!

Subject: Newbie question about pen

Hey folks,

I just started using pen, and it works great. The only issue is that it
seems to go into la la land when a machine goes down hard. If one of my 2
web servers loses it's ip address, incoming connections take about 3 minutes
to fail, no matter what the timeout is set to. Is there something I'm doing
wrong or missing? Seems to me that the load balancer should be able to
detect not only that port 80 isn't open, but also that the IP address in
question is no longer active.

Thanks in advance,

Shane Smith
