FWIW: Simple test case on a freshly restarted Win 7 with FB 2.5.2
Snapshot 64-bit Classic running as a service. While the first two get
unique socket handles, the third is already duplicated. According to
Process Explorer, I end up with the following:

-i -h 560@1512
-i -h 552@1512
-i -h 560@1512

Don't know if this can cause any troubles. ;-)
