Well, not that I know of. Are you sure that this port will be
reconnected, and is not just a leak. Not sure if you could waste more
ports this way with connections to other machines. I only have my
wife's box connect to this server. This server is actually a client to
my other boxes.

Although the rkhunter warning is the only thing that triggers, I still
would think this is a stable fix, especially if the port is leaked and
not taken again.

This built, will be testing it shortly.
