Oh, interesting. Login processes are notifying director every once in a while about connections. And looks like director isn't reading the replies, at least fast enough.. Did you check how long it was struck in this write? Forever?

I can easily change this write to be nonblocking and just retry later instead of hanging, but there is still a bug if director never reads it..
