whenever I try to use the following socket, an error window pops up
saying rubyw.exe has requested the runtime to teminate it in an unusual
way. I am running XP SP2 and ruby-1.8.6.

the socket i try to open is the following:
@s = Socket.open(Socket::PF_INET, Socket::SOCK_RAW, Socket::IPPROTO_RAW)

anyone have an explination?
