That's not necessarily true; on some systems, even a non-blocking call
to connect() can succeed immediately, if you are connecting to the local
machine. It doesn't sound right that you get this condition even when
the server process hasn't pulled the connection off the queue, but that
may be how it works.
I wonder, now, if this is an artifact of our (new) RI: we call a
nonblocking connect() every time, then select() on the server's FD to
handle the blocking case, with timeout. This may be doing the wrong
thing with nonblocking sockets.
