Yes, I understand. I just happened to reply to that one.

And the same kinds of problems? Getting EWOULDBLOCK/EAGAIN on them?
Strange because in uipc_socket.c there is one obvious place where sosend
can return EWOULDBLOCK, but that is for non blocking I/O. Can you instrument
sosend() and find where it returns EWOULDBLOCK?
