Couldn't Connect Error - Address already in use

I am using libCurl version 7.19.6 on Windows Server 2003. I am frquently getting Couldn't connect error even though the server is up. LibCurl debug logs show the error "Address already in use". I am using easy interface and new handle is used for every new request.Only when i get redirect response i am reusing the same handle to connect to the redirected host. This error("Address already in use") occurs if an application attempts to bind a socket to an IP address/port that has already been used for an existing socket, or a socket that was not closed properly, or one that is still in the process of closing. I am trying to guess whats going wrong here ? Sometimes i get this error, sometimes i don't! If required i can post detailed curl debug logs. Thanks.
