Nice catch!

I'll consider making something like that the default for 3.3.6, at least
on Linux, when using the system() source. That shouldn't break anything,
and wouldn't change the unix-dgram defaults either, and would only take
effect when one's using system(). Sounds safe enough to me.

Thanks a lot for debugging the issue, and providing a solution!
