Which may be that something *else* is using it, or that dnsmasq is
starting up in a way that causes problems with itself.  I've seen that
sort of thing when there's a network with IPv4 and IPv6 addressing in
use, and a service starts up.  It listens to both, and while starting up
complains that the port's already in use while trying to listen to the
second interface (which is really the first, with the IPv6 type of
addresses, as well as IPv4).

man netstat

e.g. netstat -antuevp

[tim localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
