Mar 6 11:31:08 yoda sendmail[85]: problem creating SMTP socket

Note...this isn't something dumb like trying to start more than one copy
of sendmail listening on port 25. This is the original sendmail pid that
got started up at bootup...and now it's saying it doesn't want to work

After this started, I killed sendmail and tried several times to restart
it. Most times it started up but refused to listen on port 25. Now I
think it is.

Ok, all reports seem to indicate that after up to 30 seconds the
problems disappear.

This means the socket is hanging around in the lookup tables until a
timeout occurs.

Are you just killing off sendmail, then trying to start it back up
right there and then, and this is when you see the error? If so, this
should be easy to track down, fix, test, and get into test4.
