If you are using the IPv6-ready code: in this case we need to create two
sockets for each OOB/TCP. One uses AF_INET and one uses AF_INET6.
IIRC, we close the superfluous socket once the connection attempt on
either one succeeds. Adrian, correct me if I'm wrong. :-)
Unfortunately, there's no easy way around this.
