i got lucky ... the bug just reproduced again - find the netstat and 
/proc/net/tcp output below. New config attached.

i also ran this for 15 minutes:

  [root@...ope ~]# tcpdump src and dst 10.0.1.15 -n
  tcpdump: verbose output suppressed, use -v or -vv for full protocol decode
  listening on eth0, link-type EN10MB (Ethernet), capture size 96 bytes

but there was no output at all - i.e. TCP has not attempted to do 
anything to these connections.

there's a hung distcc task on the system, waiting for socket action 
forever:

  [root@...ope ~]# strace -fp 19578
  Process 19578 attached - interrupt to quit
  select(5, NULL, [4], [4], {82, 90000} <unfinished ...>

disturbing that task via strace did not change the state of the socket - 
and that's not unexpected as it's a select(). [TCP state might be 
affected if strace impacted a recvmsg or a sendmsg wait directly.]

i'll keep this system in its hung state for an hour, just in case you 
can think of anything else to extract out of it.
