We're still usng winsock2 with this directive, it's our use of some
of MS winsock extension calls (mswsock.dll) that are biting us.
In fact I wrestled with the same question myself before
deciding that otherBills suggestion was probably the best.
If we were to be more to the point maybe something like
WindowsSocketsDontUseAcceptEx, but apart from the length
how many webmasters are likely to know what AcceptEx is?

I'm open to renaming if we can come up with something
more suitable,
