Subject Re: tcp/ip shutdown problem (fwd)

It does, but unfortunately, it runs afoul of several buggy Unixes whose
TCP/IP stacks don't honor the timeout when trying to close a linger-ing
socket --- I *thought* Simon had a fix which somehow got correct behavior
while not setting linger at all, but if so, this isn't it.

(HP-UX at least has the bug very badly --- set linger on a socket, and a
process will hang forever trying to close it, even if it has already been
kill -9'ed as is trying to die).
