I just noticed you patched the source earlier today to fix stuck open
socket--many thanks for doing this! It appears Linux does not like use
of "char" for optVal in the setsockopt call but rather prefers int.
Since the rest of the code treats optVal as an int anyhow this should
provide an universal fix without having to also generate optLen or
ifdefs. Can you test this on Windows as an alternative as that would
make the code cleaner? In other words, keeping the old call and simply
changing optVal to int as it is in its current version.

Best wishes,
