Yeah, but before we added the lingering_close function, all we did
was the bclose() and, as far as I can recall, worked fine for everyone
except for the nasty SysV4 ones. That leads my to believe that it worked
before. If shutdown/bclose() "should" work for SysV4, then we should
do that. I'm against adding the shutdown by default since we are
then assuming that all OSs handle that OK, and that's what burned us
with l_c().

I agree that the main default be bclose() w/o shutdown. For SysV4
systems we add shutdown. On the "back burner" we keep other options
but only if people report problems with one of the above 2. We can
also test internally (all of us) just in case, but not for betas.
I think that might be asking too much :)
