And yet terminating the TCP connection does not have the same effect on
the server process? That is to say, when the client is killed,
shouldn't the OS be responsible for immediately closing the TCP
session? Are you saying your Windows kernel (I don't remember if you
mentioned which version of Windows you have) does _not_ do this? That
sounds to me like a whole other bug - in that Windows kernel.
