I wonder if that printf might be the problem... I haven't done much
socket() programming with Perl, but I wouldn't be surprised if printf
did some strange stuff, including buffering and the like. Maybe you
should use syswrite() instead, as in
syswrite(SL_LOANET, $CLIENT_REQUEST, 240);
which actually calls write(2).
