Hi Aaron!

Thx for reporting, I had already noticed the failing builds.

We will certainly look at these a.s.a.p.

Mmmh. I tested in my build environments in various configurations 
(amd64, i386). the connection tests suceed. How can I learn more about 
these buildd limitations you hinted at? Are certain ports locked down 
etc.? If I cannot ship around those limitations, what is the 
authoritative approach then: disable these network I/O tests?
