yeah, you're right. anyway, i think, that the problems jack is reporting
are a bit suspcicious, at least. when creating a socket on localhost, i
don't see, why so many messages should be dropped. this usually doesn't
happen on a not-too-busy network, even when using udp.

i'll check here too, in order to see, if i get similar results.
