Yes, it sounds like Ncat should close its socket after accepting its
first connection. Would you write a test for how it's supposed to work?

Done in r24197.

Should closing the socket take effect in case of --max-conns also? Or
allow just the number of connections specified and then close as soon as
that number is achieved?

Eg. from the man page for context:

Bind a shell to TCP port 8081, limit access to hosts on a local
network and limit the maximum number of simultaneous connections
to three

ncat --exec “/bin/bash” --max-conns 3 --allow -l

The above examples doesn't specify --keep-open.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to push this one up a little bit, since I
need an answer in order to know how to proceed.

Should --max-conns take effect only in server listening modes(-k,
--chat, --broker) or single listening too?
