TCPServer/TCPSocket in 1.7.3 bug?

i recently upgraded to Ruby 1.7.3

ever since, i’ve been getting inconsistent results from TCPSocket and
TCPServer. my program worked fine under 1.6.7, but now i get timeouts
very frequently, and when it does work, it is very very slow, approx.
one #read per second.

has TCPSocket/TCPServer been altered for 1.7.3? has a bug crept in? can
anyone verify like behavior?
