Other network protocols (basic http and memcache connections) seem to work fine. Also, the SimpleXMLRPCServer works fine under stacklesssocket. Seems to only be the xmlrpc client.

You could try the older less correct version of this module, and see
if that lets you get away with it.

Your only other option is to try and debug this yourself.
Unfortunately, this would potentially take more time than I can spare
right now.  It does indicate that the module should be run against
more than just the standard library socket tests.  Really, I guess, in
an ideal world I would be running the entire Python test suite against
a set of modules like it.

I will try and get time to test the module against the unit tests for
this, and similar higher level networking related modules in the next
couple of weeks.  But it could be anything.  Maybe internally it makes
use of select, maybe it uses threads, otherwise it should be
reasonable to expect it to just work.
