It's a notorious issue during interpreter shutdown and has haunted
execnet for a long time.  Basically some thread is still operating
while the interpreter objects (like sys.stdout etc.) are half torn
down already.  It's really hard to prevent Python from emitting
the above exceptions, got a bit better with Python3 versions i think.
