Subject Re: connect to listener warning message

    remember this one ?

Found my answer to what is going on, have a workaround but not a fix.
Thought you might be interested in what I found.

When I build, I get (and want) IPv6 support, but when I run the image on a
IPv4 only machine, everything seems to work but the POD. Turns out that this
fails because getaddrinfo("::"...) is not providing a usefull value on an
IPv4 only machine, at least as far as the POD connection goes. When I hacked
listen.c changing "::" to "" then everything seems to work fine. I am
talking with my network guys about correcting this, but in the mean time the
listen.c hack is simple for me and works.

removed.I do not get any of these until after the load has been applied for
a 10 seconds or so.
