Please run the program with 'strace', e.g.
strace -o log ./a.out
and post the log when it fails.
Be aware that 'hGetContents' is broken on 5.02.1 if you use it
extensively (the GC will close already-reused fds and cause
your program to crash!), the patch was recently postet to -bugs
by Simon Marlow and works. OTOH, this is not the bug you're seeing.
As I just figured out, reported error above only occurs within ghci.
Otherwise Sockets seem to work on ghc 5.02.1 for Linux.
