Should be fixed now -- I'm writing the file with test data in binary

I think that it would be preferably if the socket._fileobject class
would actually interpret the mode argument, but it's never done that,
so I'm not in a hurry to add this feature to this already hairy class.
(Better wait until the new "sio" class -- see sandbox.)

Fixed too, by skipping the tests of inet_ntop() and inet_pton() when
they don't exist.

All tests now pass for me, both on Linux (Red Hat 7.8) and Windows
(Win 98 second edition).
