Right - and it erroneously invokes connect against 0.0.0.0 no matter which
way I patch this.  We need to determine that connect-to 0.0.0.0 is portable
behavior and emulate, correct the patch to connect to a non-ephemeral addr,
or revert the test.

And we need to roll a tarball - this is getting silly.  But I'm not rolling
with a borked test.
