I would delete most of the stuff in main_client_close() and just have it
call tcp_close().  This will allow any pending sends to be sent and
clean up a bit more gracefully.

I don't like the way that the listening PCB (the one returned by
tcp_listen()) isn't stored anywhere - you can never close this PCB
without a handle on it, but perhaps you never need to.

It looks to me though like if the other end tries to reconnect after the
connection has been closed then you should be fine.  What do you see
happen in this case?
