I don't even know if it IS specified.  I got the info like this:

stra:/home/sgore# fuser -v -n tcp 1024

                     USER        PID ACCESS COMMAND
1024/tcp             root        209 f....  wdm
                     root        227 f....  wdm
                     root        249 f....  xconsole
I notice now that xconsole also runs on 1024.
