Socket error problem

I have this problem on windows where socket.socket(...) keeps returning
10022, 'Invalid argument'. It's actually dieing in the
poplib.POP3.__init__(...) method. I have verified that host is reasonable
( or something like that ;)), and port is 110.

If I use the test script in poplib.__main__(...) with the correct host, user
and password, all is well, but if I call it from this other program i'm
trying to get working I get the above error.

I can't figure out what's wrong - any pointers?
