ICMPClient::ping() uses the current process ID as an identifier for correlating ping requests to responses. The respective field in the ping request is a 16-bit unsigned integer. Starting with Mac OS X 10.5, process IDs no longer fit into a 16 bit integer, leading to timeout failures as valid ping responses are discarded.
