One other thing:

frank at limedes:~ > cat /proc/net/sockstat
sockets: used 68
TCP: inuse 29 orphan 0 tw 54 alloc 29 mem 3
UDP: inuse 11
RAW: inuse 0
FRAG: inuse 0 memory 0

The app opens sockets galore (68 after less than an hour of uptime) on
the assigned port, which is probably also some kind of misbehaviour that
is part of the problem . . .
