Uh ... so the lock-file stuff is completely broken on Windows?

The SO_REUSEADDR flag is intentional --- without that, on many
platforms there would be a significant time delay needed between
stopping a postmaster and starting a new one.  But our socket lock
file machinery ought to have detected the conflict.
