 I am able to catch the exception, but thie connection object from
connection, address = sockobj.accept(), is lost.

I cannot connect to the server any longer and connection.send(data)
will generate a new socket.error: (9, 'Bad file descriptor')

I can't find a way out of this but to restart the server.
