-R tunnels

After a connection issue, sometimes I get "Warning: remote port
forwarding failed for listen port" when trying to establish -R
tunnels, and that is because sshd didn't clear the port binding when
the connection droped.

Restarting sshd on the server *doesn't* clear this issue, the port
remains binded.  Shouldn't a sshd restart solve this?
Also wouldn't it be reasonable to add a tunnel timeout option to sshd?
