If a PuTTY rlogin connection to a given remote system is terminated uncleanly (e.g., by closing the PuTTY window), further attempts to rlogin to that host result in a "PuTTY Fatal Error: Network error: Address already in use" for several minutes.
I've observed this on Win2K with Red Hat Linux i386 7.1 (in.rlogind from rsh-server-0.17-2.5). The original reporter observed it on NT4SP6a, server OS "Linux (several versions), HP-UX (several versions)".
Audit trail for this bug.
