Can't you prevent this by coupling the fd information with some other
information unique to the connection (not sure vuid is never reclied,
but some unique connection identifier would do) so that even if the fd
is they same you can still realize it is not the one you are looking
for ?

Or would this complicate the code so mush the benefit is not worth the
effort ?
