Ah yeah, I noticed the problem with the JMP_BUF but for some reason I
missed the local statics.  I am assuming that these local variables are
static simply to accomodate the setjmp() call.  If I get rid of setjmp()
and simply set the recv/send timeouts on the socket itself, there
shouldn't be any reason to have the locals declared as static.

See the attached .diff file.  Seems to work fine on NetWare.
