Hi Bill,

This was already fixed for 1.4


It could be backported I guess.

When this happens, delete the broken socket and keep trying to create a socket in case the network connection is re-established. Connecting and disconnecting was tested under PPP on Mac system 8.1. It is not if this will work on other platforms.
