How's it going?

I am trying to write an HTTP server under Self, and am having a couple of problems.
First, the Self VM is receiving a SIGPIPE when my application tries to write to a pipe that the other end has closed, and this causes a stack dump, searching through the system it looks like the Self world doesn't have to much of an interface to the unix signals mechanism, so it looks like I'm going to have to issue a
or whatever the call is to ignore a signal, and then exec the Snapshot with my http server. (This is fine)
The problems I having are: I keep getting deadProxyError, and I don't what this is. After playing with my application a while I keep losing the ability to connect to a well defined port. (Somehow something is running somewhere in the Self VM which is still holding onto the port.) And when I 'start' my application again, I get a 'EADDRINUSE' error, even though as far as I can tell, the unixFile is (dead).
I don't have a clue what the solution to the deadProxyError is, and it seems the key to fixing the EADDRINUSE problem is to find out what is holding onto my well known port address, and release it.
And hints, clues, or experience is invited.
Thanks Cameron Elliott
