What happens if you telnet to that port? Some other process may be using it. Try using 'netstat -a'. Depending on your OS,
you may be able to follow clues given there (say, inode number) to track down which process is holding the socket. I have a
script for linux that may or may not make this easy, let me know if you'd like it...
