[Twisted-Python] Agent and "Cannot assign requested address"

Actually, I think the TIME_WAIT is the problem. It's what I see in netstat, and the Agent requests are fired sequentially via yield inside a for loop (inlineCallbacks). So they shouldn't be running in parallel. 

The use case here is loading a Riak server with keys to prepare for a test. There's not a real way to get around sending one POST per key. 

How would I set the timeout value in Twisted? Or do I have to modify the timeout/keepalive systemwide in /proc?
