When the ping class is used to send a ping, but many other pings are occuring
either incoming of outgoing to/from the same machine, then the ping class will
not timeout if no ping reply is received.  This is because the receivefrom in
the ping class will exit with success when the unsolicited ping reply is
received but the class will continue around the loop and call receivefrom
again, thus resetting the timeout.  Happens only on systems which use the raw
socket implementation of ping, so unix style os running as root.
