ok, once i added back the localhost distcc component and the hung kernel
build + stuck TCP socket bug happened again overnight:

Active Internet connections (w/o servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State
tcp 72187 0 10.0.1.14:3632 10.0.1.14:47910 ESTABLISHED
tcp 0 174464 10.0.1.14:47910 10.0.1.14:3632 ESTABLISHED

so it seems distcc over localhost was the aspect that made it fail.

_Perhaps_ what matters is to have the new post-rc3 TCP code on _both_
sides of the connection. But that is just a theory - it could be timing,
etc.
