New submission from Alfred Perlstein <alfred at freebsd.org>:

A common anti-pattern in python used to get rid of "ugly" brokenpipe messages is to set the SIGPIPE handler to SIG_DFL, this however will cause your program to seemingly randomly exit if it makes any socket connections during its lifetime.  (see github PR for more info)
