This is a known problem and it's reason why we use dup() in

I'd preferr that we don't allow more than one event handler per fd
in general. A socket should be only used by one logical caller
everything else is a bug.

The tdgram_context and tstream_context abstractions only need one tevent_fd.

At least we should allow only one TEVENT_FD_READ handler and only one
for each fd. But I'd think it's better to avoid additional complexity in
the epoll backend,
which is already complex.
