I am reopening this BUG because I mistakenly closed it. The bug in the
package that triggered it is fixed, but the bug itself - namely why the
below hangs the VM is not fixed.


(Delay forMilliseconds: 100 factorial) wait.

The primitive fails (which is fine), a notifier comes up, and then the
VM hangs (which isn't).

This was uncovered by Radoslav Hodnicak due to a bug in the PostgreSQL
Client (which was using Socket standardDeadline where it should have
been using Socket standardTimeout - possibly a common gotcha for people
converting to the Network Rewrite).
