Hi John,

If you or someone else can provide the test cases, I can build and test
VMs for you on Linux.

I have a Pentium box with Linux 2.4.21 (an older SuSE distribution),
and a 64 bit AMD laptop with Linux 2.6.13 (and OpenSuSE distribution).

I have not personally experienced socket problems, nor do I run a
Seaside server, so I would need to have someone provide repeatable
tests that show the current failures.

Let me know if I can help.
