	My problem is that there are NO mud processes running.  There are 
no processes at all running that would hog the port but the port isn't 
getting reset or something like that.  Like I said I don't know how 
sockets work but was hoping someone would... So if someone could help 
figure this little problem out.. It would be very much appreciated..
