fhandler_socket::close() tries to circumvent problems with unexpected
data loss which can occur, if an application exits without having
waited for the closesocket() call being successful. The problem with
the latter is, that there's no way to find out. Therefore Cygwin
lingers on closesocket(), even with non-blocking sockets. I don't
know if that helps but you could try to build a Cygwin DLL which only
lingers if shutdown hasn't been called. I tried it with ssh and it
seems at least not to disturb ssh operation. Patch below.
