Here's an excerpt from my #nmap IRC log, dates are as in Warsaw local time:


20:17:03    bonsaiviking $ <ketilmore6>  turns out the nmap -p 1-65000 was 
finding open ports by accident because source port sometimes was equal to 
destination port. (birthday paradox)
20:17:07    bonsaiviking $ wtf
20:18:58    bonsaiviking $ confirmed on svn r32703
20:19:31    bonsaiviking $ but only with -sT


What do you think about it?

I didn't feel like reading the IRC log, but this seems reasonable
enough... I fixed this problem in raw scans a long time ago[1] (r4368).

I'm interested to know how many operating systems do this with
connect().  How many different systems have been tested?
