There is a new lonc that first tests if a remote machine answers to
"ping" before trying to open a socket. This is supposed to cut down the
number of lonc children senselessly hanging around. Currently, I
consider this lonc "experimental", and it will give definitely give you
grief with way-outdated versions of Net::Ping.
