I can reliably get a "socket destroy delayed" by pinging a non-existent
host on the local network, and hitting ctrl-c after a couple of seconds.
This then shows up almost immediately in the syslog:

Apr 1 15:51:56 pcpaul kernel: Socket destroy delayed
Apr 1 15:52:06 pcpaul kernel: Socket destroy delayed

(OK, the second line takes a bit longer :-)
After this, it's over.

This is on 1.3.73. I've already patched up to 1.3.80, but I'm waiting
for some process to finish its brute-force calculation before
rebooting... It has already run for more than a week.
