[PD] udp broadcasting with netsend: permission denied in Linux

I've used netsend for broadcasting UDP packets to the local network for 
years, connecting to (or any other port >1024) and 
I never had problems under Windows.

However in Linux it doesn't work, it doesn't connect. If I run Pd from a 
terminal, I see this error in the terminal output: "connecting stream 
socket: Permission denied (13)" (one of the few errors that don't appear 
in the pd console btw).

I remember mentioning this some time ago and being told that it had been 
fixed, but it seems it isn't.

Is there a way to circumvent this and be able to broadcast udp packets 
with netsend?
