There might be another way. According to the article below to disconnect
a UDP socket you have to call connect with the family member of the
socket address structure to AF_UNSPEC. If you don't beat me it time I'll
try to code that and see what happens.


If someone can tell me what should I use for the 3rd arg of connect()
that'll help, otherwise it won't take me long to figure it out :)
