Hopefully not that long for my stuff; I'm hoping to have it mostly done
this weekend (11th-12th) but if not it may be the next one (18th-19th)
before I can get the time.  

I'm guessing there will need to be a b6 for snprintf porting issues, but
hoping there won't.  It is looking better than I had hoped in terms of
portability, but only time will tell.

Is the BSDI box patched to have a FIN_WAIT_2 timeout? 

Anyone have a list of addresses of people who have been having trouble? 
It wouldn't hurt to send out a little survey with a few questions (ie.
what OS, does this happen with 1.1.1, does it happen if you modify this in
the source, does it happen if you modify that in the source, etc.) ...
