I'm using 3.1M1 so  this might not be correct for the
latest CVS snapshot

Have a look at the file:


The port is hardcoded to 8080.

I had the same problem when trying to change the default directory 
other than work.

This could be easily changed but looking at that file, it seems
like there is still work in progress and any changes might be
obsolete later.

If you want to change the port you may have to change the hardcoded
value for now and recompile.
