Using linux (or some other unix like thingie), you could cancel the thread using pthread_cancel(), the call will then return immediately with a specific (can't remember which) error code in errno (socketerror in this case I believe).

Problem with pthread_cancel is that there are quite a lot of cancelation points, see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/433989/posix-cancellation-points , so be careful with this approach.

Another way would be to use a non-blocking socket to accept connections...
