    Hm... that might work.  IMO it should be easy for a program to find
    out what happened (non-blocking connect doesn't work in this case), so
    it can perform a certain remedy (doing a blocking connect instead).  A
    specific error "nowait-not-supported" could be the solution.

Does anyone argue against this?
