Aehm, die you really reboot? Not just log out?
I do exactly the same thing with my setup here, and I've never seen a
problem with it.

Please type "sync", hit the reset button and see again with

netstat -anp|grep LISTEN

Basically, you'd have to restart xdm/kdm to make this work. You can do so
by running

rcxdm stop
sleep 10
rcxdm start

as root.
