Address already in use

Hello there,

I seem to have a problem with unix-sockets, and cannot see many people with the same situation when googling.

The problem is when upgrading (USR2 + QUIT) our applications. I get the following error very frequently but not always.

E, [2012-06-21T11:40:46.386486 #29401] ERROR -- : adding listener failed addr=/tmp/unicorn.app.sock (in use)

...and the only way around that I know is stoping and starting the app, even in production.

We have preload_app => true, and ONLY listening on unix-sockets, no TCP-sockets.

The only solution I can think of would we switching to TCP, but would there be a reason on doing such ?

Is this happening to any body else ? and would you know a possible solution ?

Thanks very much in advance !
