Working with Doc on this one, we've found that if you're really hammering a
listening process on the AS/400, that the backlog parameter needs to be fairly
high to avoid the AS/400 randomly discarding queued connections.

The difference between AS/400 & Unix is that Unix will give you a 'Connection
refused' if the queued connection doesn't get serviced by an accept after a
certain time. The AS/400 on the other hand will randomly throw out a connection
(not necessarily your connection) from the queue.
