Right, it was a little unclear to me before, but it now seems clear
that the callback socket that the server is opening to the client is
the one squatting on the port.
...and that sort of makes sense, doesn't it? That rpc_clnt will stick
around for the life of the client's lease, and the rpc_clnt binds to a
particular port so that it can reconnect using the same one.
Given that Stephen has done the legwork and figured out that reverting
those commits fixes the issue, then I suspect that the real culprit is
The client is likely closing down the other end of the callback
socket when it goes idle. Before that commit, we probably did an
xs_close on it, but now we're doing a xs_tcp_shutdown and that leaves
the port bound.
I'm travelling this weekend and am not set up to reproduce it to
confirm, but that does seem to be a plausible scenario.
