hmm sounds like you may have messed something up in specifying that the port
be reused right away once the process was done. don't remember the exact
programming behind it but I do believe it was covered in some document
somewhere, check the archives and the documentation and faqs that came with
the source.

If they scare then you probably shouldn't be coding ;) as your always going
to be running into them for one reason or another it's just part of the
