I've been experiencing this too. Running "netstat -au" shows the

Active Internet connections (including servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State
udp 2654 0 *:26000 *:*

(of course, the data in Recv-Q varies depending on how many times I've
tried to connect)

I found that reversing the patch to udp.c from 2.1.73 cures the problem
