> Here's the patch.

_set_cloexec() is still called whereas it is useless if the OS supports O_CLOEXEC... But the call must be kept because Linux < 2.6.23 just ignores O_CLOEXEC: we would have to check _fcntl.fcntl(fd, _fcntl.F_GETFD, 0) & _fcntl.FD_CLOEXEC to check if the kernel does really support O_CLOEXEC, which is overkill. The possibly useless syscall doesn't hurt.

Ah yes, because of O_EXCL.

The patch looks good to me!
