Mike that's very generous of you but it's not that important
-- I would not take the time to do it myself, and there's no
guarantee that my assumption as to the cause of the problem
is correct.

However if you are dying for the challenge itself:

* it's a read/write TCP socket (very much like telnet) but
  the problem is with writes

* I don't know of any special needs at creation time

* it would be necessary to maintain an intermediate buffer;
  blocking would hurt performance and the app already does
  not understand error returns

Thanks for the reply!
