Summary: Cannot connect to AIM sometimes, getting Socket Error 10038

Initial Comment:
I'm running Gaim 2.0.0beta6, and I cannot connect to AIM sometimes.

When it connects, it stops and says "-screenname- disconnected: Cannot connect 
to BOS server (Windows socket error #10038)" about half the time.  The other 
half of the time it works perfectly fine and connects and I can use AIM 

When this error comes up sometimes I can just click on the error, click the 
Connect button, and it'll work again.  But sometimes it just gives me the error 
again.  Repeated attempts to get it going just make it so I can't connect for 
ten minutes.

I've Googled up and down the internet trying to see if there's a reason, but i 
can't figure it out.  It's apparently trying to do a socket operation on a 
non-socket, but I don't know how to fix it.  Also, for the record, I tried 
connecting multiple times to AIM using other clients (namely Trillian and 
Miranda IM) and they seem to work fine; I suspect it's a Gaim specific problem.

A Winsock error of 10038 means that we're trying to use a socket that
hasn't ever been opened successfully.

Are you using a firewall? ZoneAlarm, maybe?
