We see lots (range 20-50/day) of "rxi_sendmsg failed, error 22" on our 
Linux fileservers (in the FileLog), independent of the exact OpenAFS 
version once it's in the 1.4.x range.

It's present on all (reasonably busy) Linux servers (RHEL 4), 
difficult to see any relationship to external happenings. It does 
*not* show up on our Solaris servers (SunOS 5.8 & 5.9) although they 
have similar code levels and usage patterns.

I'm going to change the code in rx_pthread.c to produce a little more 
information when it happens, unless somebody has a clue of what that 
could be.

(the servers have mostly one network interface, an eventually second 
one configured for administrative purposes listed in NetRestrict).

Does anybody else see this? Does anybody worry?
