Yeah I'm just not quite sure where to start.  I already discovered (and had 
to patch out) the errant bind() call in backend_connect.  Found out that 
was removed in 2.3 (most of our frontend proxies mention their 'servername' 
as in /etchosts, WORSE they connect to the backends using an 
entirely different interface unrelated to the servername.)
