FR 2.1.7: Error: Failed binding to proxy address

We are running Freeradius 2.1.7 (on CentOS 5 - freeradius2-2.1.7-7.el5),
and are seeing many of these messages in our log files:

  Fri Jun 11 11:44:19 2010 : Error: Failed binding to proxy address *
  port 1815: Address already in use

The server is already running and so would already be bound to the port,
so why is it trying to bind to it again? These seem to occur initially
in ones or twos, but eventually the server stops responding completely
to requests. At that point we have to restart the radiusd process.

Is this known about and maybe fixed in 2.1.9? Or is something else going
on here?
