in reply to Attempt to reload IO/Socket.pm aborted

Socket object version 1.94 does not match bootstrap parameter 2.006

You have version 2.006 of Socket.pm, but the Socket "object" (ie Socket.so) is for version 1.94.

This type of error generally indicates that a botched upgrade of Socket (from version 1.94 to 2.006, in this instance) has been performed.
Just how this stuff-up has occurred is anybody's guess.

Removing any existing Socket.so, and then re-installing Socket-2.006 should fix the problem ... but all bets are off if you're running the "system" perl. (Proceed with caution if you *are* using the system's perl.)

Afterthought: Might be safer/easier instead to replace the 2.006 version of Socket.pm with version 1.94. That should work just as well.

Cheers,
Rob
