Cannot connect to localhost on solaris

With both 1.0.3 and new-jabber I have the following issue: when attempting to connect to the jabber server running on localhost, Bitlbee stays stuck on "Connecting..."

When using truss (eq. strace on linux) I can see the sequence of events:

socket (success) connect (success) _pollsys (waiting forever)

Interesting facts:

1) When trying to connect to a remote host, everything is fine.

2) when running through a debugger I could make it work using the following sequence of events:

  1. breakpoint on proxy_connect
  2. run -D -n -v
  3. "account on" in &bitlbee
  4. breakpoint is reached, single-step (s) from this point
  5. after single stepping for a while the debugger steps into glib(or libevent) to poll after the socket was connected.

At this point bitlbee hangs as initially described. But then:

  1. type "account off" in irc
  2. type "account on" again
  3. single-step again from proxy_connect

When the single stepping reaches the glib/libevent poll loop, then the connections goes on and eventually succeeds.

Without using a debugger, no amount of "account off"/"account on" cycles make the connection succeed.
