Symptoms

 A Coherence node which is trying to connect to the cluster throws:
"java.net.BindException: Address already in use"

The default values of properties tangosol.coherence.localport and tangosol.coherence.localport.adjust indicate that the first node will bind to UDP and TCP ports 8088 and subsequent nodes will choose the next available port (8089, 8090, and so on.)  This error seems to indicate that the port adjust feature is not working.
