Great additional bit of information. Do you have a reference link for the MS bug, by any chance?

I'm not certain, but I think they're AD-integrated DNS, possibly on a newer server version. Not that I think there's any special configuration there, it's just that UDP 53 packets are dropped at an internal hop by a network policy that only applies to this class of link. (They may well use UDP internally)

A little more information would be useful. What's your server platform? Are you hosting through Apache or svnserve? Where are you expecting this custom error text to be visible?

If the issue is down to a lot of user-space software simply having too low a ceiling on socket buffer allocations, the question then becomes "Is it the job of the OS to intervene in these case? Could it even?". I'll follow if MS have come back with a useful answer.

Thanks. At least in part it's nice to know I'm not just going mad. I've read a few blogs/threads from the XP/2003 days that recommend those registry settings, but they were written before Vista/2008 and I'm pretty sure they're ignored in Vista onwards. I think I actually will raise a ticket with MS about this (wish me luck)
