Did you have an active connection before restarting?

In HylaFAX, we had the same situation and went to using SO_REUSEADDR:

The problem appears if there *was* a connection, and the server was
stopped.  Then the server can't bind again until the TIME_WAIT
connection goes away.  Using SO_REUSEADDR allows the new server to
listen again right away.
