losf netstat bound port 100

Hi all,

Being going blind again looking for an answer to a seemingly simple question.

I had a hung pop3 process (port 110), and killed it.

netstat still shows 3 connections in the FIN_WAIT_2 state.

lsof shows nothing (no connected processes).

Is there a simple way to disconnect the hung sockets?
(Other than a server reboot).

(I can't restart the pop3 deamon until those are cleared, as I get the dreaded "Can't bind to port, already in use" message.).
