There was some discussion about this when Lua 5.2 was used in
Textadept - maybe you just found a use case for having it enabled.
Mitchell might have more to say on this...
How have you LuaSocket installed, via LuaRocks?

Otherwise, you might try the LuaJIT enabled build of Textadept (this
should still be Lua 5.1 compatible, I think, as there is LuaJIT has
only upwards compatibility for 5.2 features) or try compiling
LuaSocket for 5.2 (there seem to be unofficial ports).
