I'm not sure I completely understand the scenario, but it seems wrong
for it to have worked before.  Why should a 'new' attempt at a
connection with different tcp sequence numbers have been able to have
any affect on the working socket that hasn't been closed yet at the
other end unless it is sending a RST packet. Might be interesting to
watch with wireshark to see if you are getting a RST that doesn't
close the old connection.
