Bug#501411: Took a quick look at this

Taking a closer look at the FTBFS, and the code, it seems the code is
trying to open two sockets, and then send data between both of them; I
misspoke when I said the internet, and should have said network
sockets, I'm not sure if the grid computers would prevent a socket
from being opened properly, looking at the test code, it is not
specifying a port (although that might not be necessary with
socketpair(Rdr, Wtr, AF_UNIX, SOCK_STREAM, PF_UNSPEC);
It's opening with the sockets with those flags. Any ideas?
