Description of problem:
This is well-known bind bug. When you have broken/misconfigured client who sends
too many tcp queries, you end up like this:

Feb 28 01:00:53.826 client no more TCP clients: quota reached
Feb 28 01:00:53.829 client no more TCP clients: quota reached
Feb 28 01:00:53.831 client no more TCP clients: quota reached
Feb 28 01:00:53.832 client no more TCP clients: quota reached
Feb 28 01:00:54.720 quota.c:68: INSIST(p != ((void *)0) && *p == ((void *)0)) failed
Feb 28 01:00:54.720 exiting (due to assertion failure)

See for
further info. This has been fixed in 9.2.2rc1, can you incorporate this fix, please?
