[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 255.255.255.255:5000 (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
