Well, this seems to be half the story. If I remove the close() and let server bleed file descriptors, the RST goes away. If I add a read() on the socket after sending all the data, the RST goes away. However, there's NO DATA on the socket. read() returns zero until the client closes the socket.

Hello! Using linux-2.4.0-test9, bind() incorrectly allows a bind to a non-local address. The correct behavior should be a return code of -1 with errno set to EADDRNOTAVAIL. You can bind to any address, it is your right. You will not able to receive on or to send from such socket until
