opened socket in IDE prevents script changes

I've not seen any such problems - though with 9.6.1 / Mac.

I've spent most of the last week in the IDE, with two or more stacks 
open (one server, one client - occasionally multiple client stacks) so I 
have multiple open sockets (both 'accept'ing and 'open'ed)  almost all 
the time, and had no problems with IDE or script editor.

(I know - that's no consolation, but I thought I'd mention it in case 
9.6.1 was an option for you and might just help:-)
