What happens if we just "#ifndef WIN32" the setsockopt(SO_REUSEADDR)
call?  I believe the reason that's in there is that some platforms will
reject bind() to a previously-used address for a TCP timeout delay after
a previous postmaster quit, but if that doesn't happen on Windows then
maybe all we need is to not set the option.
