If SSLTunnel is killed when it still has some connections opened then the connections are closed but (at least on linux) remain in the TIME_WAIT state for a short time. This stops a subsequent instance of SSLTunnel from starting as it fails to bind to the still open socket. We can avoid this by setting the SO_REUSEADDR option before attempting to bind. This will allow rebinding an existing socket in the TIME_WAIT state. The alternative would be delaying for short times if unable to bind but this seems the most elegant solution.

Simple fix, just sets the Reuseaddr option on the socket before binding.
