I've done some further research on this on Win32, and I've come up with
If I set the flag SO_EXCLUSIVEADDRUSE, I get the same behavior as on
Unix: Can only create one postmaster at a time on the same addr/port,
and if I close the backend with a psql session running I can't create a
new one until there is a timeout passed.
However, if I just *skip* setting SO_REUSEADDR completely, things seem
to work the way we want it. I cannot start more than one postmaster on
the same addr/port. If I start a psql, then terminate postmaster, I can
restart a new postmaster right away.
Given this, I propose we simply #ifdef out the SO_REUSEADDR on win32.
Anybody see a problem with this?
(A fairly good reference to read up on the options is at
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms740621.aspx - which
specifically talks about the issue seen on Unix as appearing with the
SO_EXCLUSIVEADDRUSE parameter, which agrees with my testresults)
