I've also seen this in bpl11 on a red hat system, though I have no idea which
version it was.  If I'd had the motivation to fix it, I was planning on
replacing the socket code with what's in pl14.  Someone else wrote a watchdog
tcl script to shut the mud down when this happens before I got around to
fixing it right.
