Hi Paul,

We have a number of tickets on this issue already (626,615,588).

The problem is that EBADF return indicates that Varnish by mistake
has closed a file descriptor, that should still be open.

The alternative explanation, that Solaris can return EBADF because
the other end closed a TCP connection, does not seem to have any
support in Solaris documentation.

We are trying to get a Solaris box running so we can figure this
out once and for all.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
