That did fix the pack tests, yes.

The failed part of that output is below:

ok 35 - shutdown left for writing
# Approximate forever as 3 seconds. Wait 'forever'...
not ok 36 - read on right should be interrupted
#     Failed test (../ext/Socket/socketpair.t at line 221)
#          got: '0'
#     expected: undef
not ok 37 - alarm should have fired
#     Failed test (../ext/Socket/socketpair.t at line 223)
#          got: '0'
#     expected: '1'
ok 38 - syswrite to right


Any suggestions from this point?

Thanks again,
