During hevy load of UDP packaging, after having certain amount of
bytes on a listen queue of certain port, the listening
server starts to receiving malformed packets. Giving the message:Bad arg 
length for Socket, during a recv system call. The message stops as soon
as the queue reach 0 lenght again, it starts again as the lenght size

It is a really serius problem because it can put out of service
something as important as radius service.

Do you have a simple demonstration piece of code that shows this. I can't
generate this
