I have almost the same setup (Pd 0.43.1, iemnet compiled on 2012-02-02).
I cannot reproduce your first problem. Disconnecting clients from the
server works fine with your patch here.

I have that as well, but it seems it is not specific to iemnet's
classes. I experience that with many net classes in Pd and also - IIRC -
with other programming languages that provide ways to open a listening
socket. On my box it is a matter of seconds until the bind address is
freed. On an earlier Debian installation, it was often a matter of
minutes (for instance, when the netpd server crashed), which was more
annoying. I haven't figured out a way to avoid this.
