Yes I understand that. This is not the issue. I am not considering the socket
generated by the acceptor (sorry for the confusion). The client side seems
to generate 2 sockets!

>From tcpview (sysinternals):
Test.exe:3440 TCP PC-ENG1-13:3144 localhost:3145 ESTABLISHED
Test.exe:3440 TCP PC-ENG1-13:3145 localhost:3144 ESTABLISHED
Test.exe:3440 TCP PC-ENG1-13:3146 localhost:50000 ESTABLISHED

The last one is the socket between the client and the server.
The first two connect to each other, but why are these generated?? We see
this happening after internally in the boost library the "reactor" is
The demo program "chatserver" and "chatclient" have the same behaviour.
