close socket "1234"

Note:  If you have both a UDP listener and a TCP listener, you don't 
know which this will close.  (Well, I don't know; it might be based on 
order of accepts.)  Use this if you have only one or will close both 
together anyway.

If you want to accept just one connection at a time, close the accept 
when you get a connection and re-accept when that is over.

(I've been taking a break from lists for a half season and hope to 
moderately get back into Revolution lists this month.)
