Hi all. I recently stumbled upon an address length calculation problem in
socketmodule.c, for UNIX sockets and anonymous "linux" sockets, that is
triggered on some embedded platforms due to padding issues.

I have submitted a patch dealing with the issue about 4 months ago, but it
is still unassigned, and the bug remains even in 3.0:


I would be very grateful if some of the core developers can take a look at
the issue so this can be fixed in time for 2.6.
