This must be behavior change in Windows 8 as I don't think we've seen
this before (as we have several tests that do non-blocking connects).
The usual thing when you attempt to connect is that the operating system
should first bind to a local address (if not bound already) before it
attempts to establish the connection. I've no doubt that this will break
other things too.
