I'm afraid I no longer have all the details of this design in my head, and I have no idea what the fix does (and no time to read up on everything).

The OP says "If you do not await gather" -- what happens if you *do* await it? Do the tasks then get killed?

It seems strange to both cancel the task *and* set its exception.

The docstring for gather() seems to be pretty clear that cancellation and failure of one task should not affect other tasks. So this argues against the PR.
