SocketServer.ThreadingTCPServer accepts clients outside server_forever

Hello,

SocketServer.ThreadingTCPServer accepts connections (clients can
connect) before and after it's server_forever method is called,
see below for an example.

IMHO it should only accept connections while server_forever is
running.

Kind regards,

Okko

Example, both _socket.connect calls should throw;

import SocketServer
import threading
import time
import socket

server = SocketServer.ThreadingTCPServer(("127.0.0.1", 12345),
SocketServer.BaseRequestHandler)

_socket = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM)

_socket.connect(("127.0.0.1", 12345))

def shutdown_server():
  while not server._BaseServer__serving:
    time.sleep(0.1)
  server.shutdown()

thread = threading.Thread(target = shutdown_server)
thread.start()

server.serve_forever()
thread.join()

_socket = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM)

_socket.connect(("127.0.0.1", 12345))
