In my case it was on Windows Vista x64, running a recent 32bit java 1.6.

Linux also responds "correctly".  :)

Out of curiosity, I made the following little test program. It seems to 
demonstrate the difference in behaviour on Windows and Linux.

import java.io.BufferedReader;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.InputStreamReader;
import java.net.InetAddress;
import java.net.InetSocketAddress;
import java.net.ServerSocket;
import java.net.UnknownHostException;

public class Reuse {
    private static void bind() throws UnknownHostException, IOException {
        Thread th = new Thread(new Runnable() {
            public void run() {
                try {
                    ServerSocket s = new ServerSocket();
InetSocketAddress(InetAddress.getLocalHost(), 12347));
                } catch (Exception ex) {

    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
        System.out.println("bound. Press Enter.");
        new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in)).readLine();
