bad karma with 2.0.1

There's appears to be some oddities with bind() in the new 2.0.1.
basically, if an ftp server is running 2.0.1., then it appears that
two people can't download at the same time.

What _appears_ to happen is :
session #1 bind's port 20
does a connect to remote ip.

session #2 attempts to bind port 20.
fails with EADDRINUSE

This worked prior to 2.0.1 (i.e. 2.0.0). As far as I can see, the old
behaviour was legal. So why is the kernel now denying it??
