I can't connect() to my own link-local address.
connect just hangs.

Before some wise guy now tells me I should be connecting to ::1 instead:
"oh, really!" ;) The application is npush/npoll from my ncp program

strace of the receiver reveals that it hangs in the connect() call.

Any takers? Why does this not work?
