There is a problem with older Emacsen that causes a similar problem.
When such an old Emacsen receives a signal during connect, Emacs closes
the connection and tries to reconnect.  Newer Emacs versions wait until
the file descriptor for the socket becomes readable.  I think that
problem was fixed in versions after Dec. 2010.
