I'm only testing on the one system; Scientific Linux 6 (a Fedora derivative).
The coding looking for that dual-use socket is (IMHO) highly dubious. It will
false-pos when the IPv4 socket gets a "real" EADDRINUSE. I think I'm
getting such - I'm also getting them for the initial (wildcard) socket
whether IPv4 or v6. They seem to last 5-10 seconds.
The manpage claims IPV6_V6ONLY is supported.
Testcase 0561 is my current repeat-by for IPv4; 1001 for IPv6.
