I am using a thread pool. I spawn 40 threads on startup. And I have just
checked that they actually gets reused properly, and it all seems fine.

Also, there's growth when the program makes a http request itself, and
here there is definitely no thread spawned. But i won't rule it out as
the explanation quite yet, theres a lot going on at the same time.

I'm trying to create a small test program demonstrating the issue for
you all.

Hang on.
