To ensure that your test is not influenced by previously cached entries, delete /opt/local/var/macports/pingtimes before trying again. If you didn't see this problem with other ports that are not perl modules, then presumably there is some smaller number of simultaneous pings that will work.

In src/port1.0/fetch_common.tcl the line that reads:
