To be accurate, it depends on how the socket is closed and whether or
not there is someone at the other end.  If the other party does a
proper close, the socket disappears as normal.  The 60 second timeout
is when the other party does not close the socket.

So it might be possible (but I'm probably saying stupid things now) to
empty the accept queue by accepting and closing sockets, depending on
the behaviour of the client.
