This bug has been fixed in CVS.

If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on
by the end of next Sunday (CET).

If this was a problem with the website, the change should
be live shortly.

Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release.

Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.

added patch and test files. Note: there are phpcs issues and the
package.xml needs to be updated to version 2 of the xml spec.
These issues are seperate from fixing the bug described here and will be
addressed seperately.

Hey Ken, got your PEAR QA hat handy?

Added patch for change suggested by afw at finexe dot com

I wasn't getting a timeout prior to the patch but the change appears to
not throw up any new problems.

I solved this long ago. There was indeed a bug that made this package
very unstable for me.

Here is the change I made, and it has worked well since then:

<         if (PEAR::isError($socket->connect($nicServer,
getservbyname('whois', 'tcp')))) {
>         if (PEAR::isError($socket->connect($nicServer,
getservbyname('whois', 'tcp'), false, 25))) {

I'm on windows 2k3 (no SP) with precompiled php, and no gdb that I know
of. Is there any backtrace instructions for windows?
