I just realized that, too. Has this ever worked?

It seems that we should use AF_INET instead of PF_INET on Win32. I'm going to address this in the nwellnhof/platform_src branch.

It is a regression.

2511592 should hopefully fix this, but I couldn't test it.

I just tested this program on 64bit Windows 7, and it works fine. I'm comfortable closing this, but we might want another data point to confirm (fperrad?).
