[Catalyst] Bug in old Advent example of async/websockets code?

Last I checked it worked however there's no version of this in the catalyst test repo.  If you can help me figure out how to bake a test for this (even if it needs to be an optional developer only test) I'd greatly appreciate it.

I've been trying to replicate the use of WebSockets in Catalyst, by
following the example from the Advent calendar a year and a bit ago.

In my experience, it isn't actually working properly -- I get the
"Echo Initiated" message, but then an instant disconnect.

Looking at the code, I'm highly suspicious of the $hd variable -- it
doesn't get stored anywhere, and according to the AnyEvent docs, I
think that means it will get DESTROYed once it goes out of scope. ie.

That fits the behaviour I'm seeing, although I think I've had it work
for me randomly at times as well, so...  I don't know.

I wondered if anyone here has thoughts on the matter?
