I have not found any problems like that. I have a fair amount of socket 
code in (personal) use, with either or both the client and the server 
being in either Rev or python, so I have a mix of languages, and a mix 
of PC and Macs.

I know it's particularly hard to identify a problem case when it is 
intermittent (i.e. when it seems "hit or miss"), but if you have any 
specific case (or if it would be possible for me to look at or run the 
code, I'd be happy to try to help.
