Well, I decided to eat my own dog food, and install the
patches on the live server. The install went without a hitch.
Once I opened up the firewall however, only the first of all pings made it out the door. Easy fix for once.

@LWP::Protocol::http::EXTRA_SOCK_OPTS = 
   Addr  => $localaddr,
   Reuse => 1

The Reuse => 1 part was the key. The ip:port socket from the first ping wasn’t released for
the second ping could bind to that same IP:PORT I suspect this is a scope issue with each
LWP::UserAgent. This problem would’ve only effected people who used PingInterface IP:PORT
instead of the recommnded PingInterface IP

Now it’s time to fix my Trackback links. :-)
