This should now be fixed in CVS .789. I've also attached the patch to this bug report.

- Fixed a /RESTART issue on Linux: Unreal did not properly close all file-
  descriptors. Because of this, Unreal did not restart properly as you would
  get an "Address already in use" error. This only seemed to happen when
  logging to syslog. Reported by Mouse (0003882).
- Fixed a similar issue with syslog (and debugmode) and closing fd's as well:
  the first port we listened on would not open up, ircd did not log any error.

I've slightly changed the changelog to:
  get an "Address already in use" error. This only seemed to happen when
  logging to syslog, or when there was something wrong with syslogd.
as it wasn't exactly clear when this happened (like.. I didn't have to kill syslogd in order to reproduce it, but had to enable syslog logging in unrealircd.conf).. anyway, it sounds like this only happened sporadically...
