EVALUATION I've changed the synopsis to reflect what this isssue is about. It seems that on MacOSX (10.6.8 at least) that send will fails with ECONNREFUSED for an unconnected UDP socket. This error should only be returned for the connected case. I notice that Apple's JDK6 does not fail in the same way so they may be a socket option or other means to disable this error when not connected.
