How serious is this bug? I'm particularly concern about twisted.web.server.
Servers don't open connections, so it's not relevant there.
It probably does not cause fd leaks, since python's gc will likely do
that. close()ing explicitly is better, obviously.
As a rough figure, with a max file descriptors limit of 1024, on Python 2.3.5, this tends not to be a problem with connection rates below 100 failed connections per second. The file descriptors are eventually closed by the Python GC, it just takes a little while since the sockets are part of cyclic garbage.
