Unfortunately this didn't close the gap, so the leak persisted.

I did some research on the source of the error. There are circular references between instances of _SelectorSocketTransport and _SSLProtocolTransport (see attached image), therefore these objects are destroyed by garbage collector. The order might be arbitrary. When _SelectorSocketTransport is destroyed after _SSLProtocolTransport everything is ok, but with the opposite order we get the error printed. Here is description on how to reproduce this:
