Re: A call to revise sockets behaviour

A wine developer clearly showed that this option simply doesn't work.

Output of strace:
getsockopt(24, SOL_SOCKET, SO_REUSEADDR, [0], [4]) = 0
setsockopt(24, SOL_SOCKET, SO_REUSEADDR, [1], 4) = 0
bind(24, {sa_family=AF_INET, sin_port=htons(43012), sin_addr=inet_addr("0.
0.0.0")}, 16) = -1 EADDRINUSE (Address already in use)

The output of netstat -an didn't by any chance happen to still show an endpoint in the LISTEN state for that port number did it?
