I've fixed your bug #12 (http://ds9a.nl/cgi-bin/cvstrac/pdns/tktview?tn=12)

But I'm wondering about bug #13:

Setting d_tcpserversock to nonblocking is indeed recommended by Stevens. If
d_clientsock is unable to ever unable to send, pdns should wait. Not a lot
of reason to barge onwards then as the kernel is then unable to send packets

Same for d_serversock - I'm unaware of there ever being the possibility for
select returning that there is a datagram which there then isn't at read()

I've changed to code to set the tcp server socket to nonblocking, and to be
on the safe side, d_serversock too. I do want to block on d_clientsock.
