On startup, Ode creates a GUID generator. The GUID generator uses posession of a socket at a particular time as a mutex to guarantee the time seed. However, it is using the default socket options to do this, which prevents rapid multiple spinup and/or restart of the processes embedding Ode as the socket is stuck in TIME_WAIT by the operating system.
Fix: in ProcessMutex.java:lock(), swap:
ss = new ServerSocket(port);
ss = new ServerSocket();
