But what does the ISIC tool report and why do you think it is a problem in Python's socket module?

As far as I can read on its website, "ISIC is a suite of utilities to exercise the stability of an IP Stack and its component stacks (TCP, UDP, ICMP et. al.)". The IP stack, as well as the UDP and TCP implementations, is in the system's kernel, not in Python.
