Subject Re: TCP Connection Timeout Problems. Possibly.

Wow.  Glad you caught this.  And you did a very through analysis of the problem.
I think that there is a simple fix for this too.  It should be
possible do the transport.start() call in an async thread.  That way
the acceptor thread can't get blocked by a bad connections.

I opened jira issue:
http://issues.apache.org/activemq/browse/AMQ-875

to track the bug.
