*thank you* !!

Please keep us posted on socket bug progress, is that possible?

I spoke with our IBM sales reps about this and they suggested we upgrade GCC to 3.3.3 or later. Their PMR for this is PMR25534,077,649 if you happen to need the reference. We upgraded to 4.0.1 and got it to compile.

We're now seeing the same socket bug as everyone else. Chris Browne filed a bug report with IBM and has opened PMR29657,500. We hope to see resolution shortly.
