Ah ha, the problem is due to how you're using TCPServer.  Try:

SocketServer.TCPServer.reuse_address = 1
server = SocketServer.TCPServer( ('', 8000), TestRequestHandler )
server.serve_forever( )

The problem is that the socket is bound (TCPServer.__init__ calls
server_bind( )), it logically follows that you have to set this particular
socket option before the socket is bound :)
