This is to trap bad code that closes a random filedescriptor. FreeBSD is
hit by a similar bad close which manages to close the DNS socket used
for gethostbyname lookups.

Shafeeq is looking into this. Cmon has the same problem as venus, is
easier to debug and should (almost) never close anything, so this one
might be found RSN.
