The python docs state that for socket.makefile "The file object references a dup()ped version of the socket file descriptor, so the file object and socket object may be closed or garbage-collected independently."

In fact for dup() is never called, and no additional files are opened. Instead an object is returned which uses the original socket and does buffering.

For me, this is the desired behaviour, but just thought I'd mention the docs were off.
