And that if it _is_ making a setsockopt() SO_RCVBUF call that the size
isn't being clipped by a system tunable?  That can happen silently.

One of these days I'll have to go checking the named source to see if
it makes a getsockopt() call after the setsockopt() to see that it got
at least as much as it requested...
