Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 46630] httpd wont start if there are two (or more) exactly same host entries in the hostfile and the Listen directive has hostname in addtion to port

1. there is no dns lookup involved here. this is the /etc/host file and the
machine is querying its own hostname.
2. surely i am better off using IP addresses. as i said there are workaround
for sure. (in my case that is not a option available to me)
3. however that does not take away from the fact that httpd is trying to bind
to a socket it has already acquired. i have only uncovered one manifestation of
this issue - hopefully the only one.
(think of this as trying to call open on file that you already have opened -
obviously that would be a error condition).
