Description Ed Giardina 2015-04-04 13:35:00 UTC
Good summary here

If I create an HTTPListener object and call Stop(), subsequent calls to Close() are not actually forcing a close of the HTTP listener and a check of the ports in use on OSX show that the ports are still being listened to. Stop() sets disposed=true which means once Stop() is called Dispose() will never happen until IDispose is invoked. .Close() should not return on disposed=true, or Stop() should not set disposed=true
