|Problem:
|   TCP/IP socket routine(s) not functioning properly on OpenVMS.

|Specifics:
|   The Socket.gethostbyname routine does not return the proper
|   values.  It's supposed to return an array filled with the
|   canonical host name, sub-list of aliases, the connection family 
|   and the address portion of the host sockaddr.

It's not OpenVMS specific problem.  Socket.gethostbyname returns
packed struct sockaddr, not address portion.
