Your example fails -as expected- on my PC running Python 2.5.2 + Windows  
XP SP2. It may be something specific to your setup or your platform.

py> test(8084)
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
   File "<stdin>", line 5, in test
   File "<string>", line 1, in connect
socket.error: (10061, 'Connection refused')
