I don't have any experience on HP-UX so take this with a grain of salt...

I am assuming you are using ECC RAM, and that the hardware is good. If
there is any doubt here, you may want to look into diagnostics on these
Just checking obvious things: Same version of libc on both working and
nonworking systems? Any updates that you know of on working computers
that are not on nonworking systems? What about the kernel (for socket
handling)? Any difference there?

So basically it is hanging when writing to the socket. Does this change
if you use TCP/IP (say adding a -h localhost to your commandline)?
In combination with the error about incomming connections, I wonder if
something is up with the socket handling on the affected systems...
