[New-bugs-announce] [issue5661] asyncore should catch EPIPE while sending() and receiving()

New submission from Giampaolo Rodola' <billiejoex at users.sourceforge.net>:

I received a report from a pyftpdlib user:
...complaining that an unhandled EPIPE error might be thrown by
asyncore.py on OS X in certain circumstances which are hardly reproducible.

By googling a little about it it seems that he's not the first one who
got this problem:

I think it makes sense modifying dispatcher.send() and dispatcher.recv()
to include EPIPE as error condition to indicate that the connection has
been closed and call handle_close() as consequence.

The patch in attachment does that.
