You don't need to open the socket,  just use accept datagram alone.

You need to do something strange,  don't ask me why but I know it works.  In
your "contact" handler do the following:

 on contact fromWho, what
   -- do all your data stuff stuff here

   -- OS X fix
    if the platform && the systemversion contains "MacOS 10" then
      close socket 4038
      accept datagram connections on port 4038 with message "contact"
    end if
 end contact
