I see the same on 11, but yet I do get the same EINVAL error. Are you saying you saw this working on 10 with 2.5, or can you perhaps try this?

That doesn't seem to be necessary. The same code that seems to have been used before is now failing, so I think there's a problem on that code path (having STORAGE but no length).

I think one would probably have to convert back to a sockaddr_in also (the change was for Ipv6).
