Two thoughts:

1. Aren't you running the listining process in the debugger? In theory, 
when it fails under debugger it may not correctly release all listening 
ports as the debugging process doesn't really exit.

2. It may be some windows-specific behaviour. In any case try checking 
which process uses the port (eg. "netstat -o -n -a | findstr :80" and 
look up the process ID in the task manager).
