The attached code generates an unclosed socket ResourceWarning when timing out trying to connect to an unreachable address.

Probably not terribly serious, but in my case, it generates distracting warnings during unit testing.

I have looked briefly at the asyncio code but it's not immediately obvious to me how to fix it.

Here is a patch for Python 3.5. It should be applied to Python 3.4 too.

BaseEventLoop.create_datagram_endpoint() and _UnixSelectorEventLoop.create_unix_server() have the same bug.

close2.patch fixes these methods but also modify socketpair() to ensure that the 2 sockets are closed on error.

I didn't audit the whole asyncio module.

Note: BaseEventLoop.create_server() uses a different approach: a "completed" flag with a try/finally block.

Thanks Victor, that fixes my problem.

I've started using tulip/master as part of my project as that also solves other issues I have with the default asyncio of python 3.4.0, but hopefully this fix will into tulip/master as well as python 3.4.1 / 3.5.

Updated patch (close-3.patch) combining create_connection_close.patch  and close2.patch and adding unit tests. I also improved the create_connection() test to raise the TimeoutError on connect() (loop.sock_connect), not on sock.set_blocking().

Can someone review close-3.patch please?

I fixed the issues in Tulip, Python 3.4 and 3.5. Thanks for the report.
