Socket read problems

  The two handlers are right next to each other in the card script.  You 
may be right about getting another error like socketError or socketClose 
that overrides the need for socketTimeout although I would think any 
socket timeout would also constitute a socket error wouldn't it?  If so, 
why the two messages?
