Hello Andreas,
 It seems like a strange error. select() fails for some reason in these
systems in client side. Could you apply the two patches below (the
difference is that the print the errno) and re-run the test with -v?
This would provide an idea of why select fails there. Is there something
particular about these systems? Are they busy, have some particular
linux kernel or libc version?;a=commitdiff;h=43e14e8a5cef27f319316bb7ff0de8b86272ac99;a=commitdiff;h=ef9d0e356c191db966b7eb5ed8e55e7155b029c3
