This does seem horribly broken it it appears specific to this network
environment. I duplicated the issue with just a small socket program.

On the network having the problem, when I try the connect to I get
the SYN - RST behavior and we go off into the error 52 code path.

>From home, when I try the same thing, I see 3 SYNs go out, no reply at all
come back, and then get an error 7 as expected.

I'm not a network infrustructure guru, but it would appear that there is
some switch/router/whatever issuing the RSTs and this appears to be
confusing the hell out of the Windows TCP/IP stack.

This is the best I can come up with. I'm not sure if the problem lies in
the Window's stack or if this network shouldn't be issuing the RST. I'll
try a Linux client from the "problem" network on Monday and see how it
