Thank you - patch enclosed.

I didn't mean any disrespect and my apologies if I have misunderstood where
the problem is.

My point really was that if singleipconnect() is failing (and I'm not too
sure why connect() would fail with an result code of -1 and leave the socket
open - except in the switch statement in that function) then I feel that
singleipconnect() should close the socket rather than have one of the
calling functions do the work.

Cheers again
