Steps to reproduce the issue:

- in one shell run: "python -m smtpd -n"
- in another one run: "for i in {1..1000};do nmap -sT -p 8025 localhost;done"

The server will print out the following output and just quit (DoS):

giampaolo@ubuntu:~/svn/python-2.7$ ./python -m smtpd -n 
error: uncaptured python exception, closing channel <__main__.PureProxy listening localhost:8025 at 0xb74b0f4c> (<class 'socket.error'>:[Errno 107] Transport endpoint is not connected [/home/giampaolo/svn/python-2.7/Lib/|read|79] [/home/giampaolo/svn/python-2.7/Lib/|handle_read_event|430] [/home/giampaolo/svn/python-2.7/Lib/|handle_accept|296] [/home/giampaolo/svn/python-2.7/Lib/|__init__|124] [/home/giampaolo/svn/python-2.7/Lib/|meth|222])

This is due to issue 6706.
