Problem w/ reflector demo

I'm trying to get the reflector demo running under Digital UNIX
(a.k.a. DEC OSF/1). When I try to fire up the reflector, the reflect.conf
file is echoed as expected, then the reflector terminates immediately, with
the following message:

init_socket: cusm sock open failed
: Address already in use: FATAL ERROR: EXITING

The log file looks like this:

open_log file: /usr/local/app/wpine/reflect.app/reflect.log.<HOSTNAME>
INFO: Socket bound to interface <IP_ADDRESS>
bind error port 7648, addr <IP_ADDRESS>
init_socket: cusm sock open failed
: Address already in use: FATAL ERROR: EXITING

where <HOSTNAME> and <IP_ADDRESS> are the host name and IP address of the
system on which the reflector is trying to run, an AlphaStation 200 4/100
running Digital UNIX v3.2 (Rev. 214).

A prior version of the reflector ran fine, albeit with a byte-order
problem, such that we couldn't use masks in, for example, a CONF-ADMIT line.
Any ideas?

Thanks,
Mike
