Yes, I've seen the same problem with the connect() call under Windows/NT,
but I've not had the cycles to debug the problem. It doesn't seem to appear
when you're running in non-blocking mode, so I suspect that the
HTThread/HTEvent handling is the place to look. And I see the behavior when
connecting directly to a server as well.
