Bug #8039

DRB/dRuby server throws an exception when probed on its port

I am not sure if this is a bug or a feature ...

When I use nmap to probe the port that the DRB server is listening on, it throws an exception.

Should the server be more resilient to this and/or have an option to restart itself automatically?

Or is the last code sample I give the suggested usage.
