In the news release for SBB 10.229, you mention that "Windows RT has severe bugs in socket classes, which make RT sockets nearly impossible to use". Could you be more specific ?

In particular, call Send, Flush and Close sequentially and you get data lost. I.e. flush doesn't seem to really push the data down the TCP stack and graceful socket shutdown doesn't help either.

We are still investigating this, so my comment in the change list was merely to warn users about possible unexpected problems.

Sincerely yours
