As I now have a Ubuntu installation running in a virtual machine, I took a
look at this.  It was a bug in asyncore in Python 2.6, where a connection
error was treated like a normal connection event.  I added special case code
to stacklesssocket.py to do the proper handling if Python 2.6 is being used.
 A new version has been checked in.

Thanks for the excellent bug report Esteban :-)
