Yup. I've run into this one before myself. Fortunately, the CMUCL
socket stuff -- and thus one would assume "sb-bsd-sockets" as well --
provides a :REUSE-ADDRESS keyword on the CREATE-INET-LISTENER function.
Just set it to T, and it will do the proper "setsockopt()" on the
"listen()" file descriptor for you.
