I am not really sure what you can do since you tend to find issues
deep inside libsofia-sip and its portability to OSX.
Maybe make your restart script sleep a bit?

su_setreuseaddr(socket, 1);

After searching on the wen I found many references to TIME_WAIT but all fixes were to the program source. So I am wondering if when FS/sofia shuts down they are not releasing the ip/port for internal. If it's true, I found some source changes to solve it. Google "TIME-WAIT" and you'll find lots of good stuff like http://serverfault.com/questions/329845/how-to-forcibly-close-a-socket-in-time-wait. Apparently there is no way to free up the port manually. Help/comments anyone?
