Yep, it works now.

I'm not a GCC expert but I'd expect that GCC testing usually doesn't
happen under Windows/Cygwin but rather using native Unix environments.

That's certainly an are where Cygwin has a really hard job.  Reaping
zombies is usually left to process 1 (init) under Unix.  As there's no
init in Cygwin, they need to do some other housekeeping.

As a workaround, you could setsockopt(..., SO_REUSEADDR) the server
socket after opening.  That way, another process will be allowed to
clobber the first server's listening port.
