Okay, that explains it.

Is it?  I don't think I've ever seen the semantics of SOCK_SEQPACKET
nailed down precisely enough.  If you think of it as "SOCK_STREAM iwth
preservation of record boundaries", then it makes sense; if you think
of it as "SOCK_DGRAM with sequencing and reliable delivery", less so.

Have I just missed some spec somewhere?
