This is caused by an accept() failure.
I don't think accept() can return "Operation not supported" on a listener TCP socket. If that assumption is true then it means it is (no longer) a TCP listener socket.. perhaps the socket has been closed & overwritten by some other socket somehow (eg: closing wrong fd somewhere).
The blacklist module does nothing with FD's. It does use c-ares extensively though, which does open & close FD's.

I've been hammering my server with clones (about 300-500 clones per second), with a few of them on a local blacklist. Disconnecting, connecting, constantly.
No issues.

(Tried also both with and without identd-check and with cached and uncached IP's)

Not resolved, but a workaround has been added:
[unreal40 f6a58b6] Added workaround for "Cannot accept connections: Operation not supported" problem (0004469).

UnrealIRCd will now close the listener and re-create it.
(This assumes the problem is at an UnrealIRCd level)
