Default Broadcast does not under FreeBSD

We need to write a Python app that uses limited broadcast to send messages in our closed network. However, we've discovered that although our code works fine under Linux it does not work under FreeBSD. This problem appears to be described in this article:

Is this problem still not resolved in FreeBSD 7.0? We essential that we find a way to send/receive broadcasts under FreeBSD, preferably in Python. Surely there must be a way to do this? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
