this appears to be a linux'ism and applies only when going from an
unspecified bind ( to a specified bind to an address on the
host.  changing specified bind addresses works as expected.

i'm not sure what the correct workaround is for this; i can't seem to
find any good documentation on this behavior and how to avoid it.
SO_REUSEADDR is getting set but apparently behaves "weirdly" on
sockets with unspecified binds.

perhaps some on list has dealt with this before...

best regards,
