Reflector on Linux: recvfrom error on vid_sock

I am trying to run the 4.0B3 reflector under Linux 1.2.13, with libc
4.7.5 (a.out). It works for a few minutes, but dies with the following
error message:

recvfrom error on vid_sock : Connection refused: FATAL ERROR: EXITING

Apparently, this is a long-standing problem. The old 3.0B3 reflector
that is in the Linux archives at has a README that
mentions patching the code to ignore this error.

I've tried the reflector from Cornell and the one from White Pine;
they seem to be identical.

As popular as Linux and CU-SeeMe are, somebody else has to have seen
this. Anyone know how to make it work?
