Description Greg Young 2015-01-12 18:03:16 UTC
Already discussed a bit on mailing list. It seems to happen quite a bit that SafeFileHandle will end up causing a 

_wapi_handle_unref_full: Attempting to unref unused handle 0x6e

From looking I thought I was somehow closing the handle twice but I am not sure how I could be doing that below.

Code included that causes it. Note message happens asynchronously (my guess is on next GC).

        public void shitbird_test() {
           var filename = GetFilePathFor(Guid.NewGuid().ToString());
           using(var stream = new shitstream(filename)) {

    public class shitstream : Stream {
        private SafeFileHandle _handle;

         public shitstream(string filename) {
            var han = Syscall.open(filename, OpenFlags.O_CREAT | OpenFlags.O_RDONLY, FilePermissions.S_IRWXU);
            var _handle = new SafeFileHandle((IntPtr) han, true);
            if(_handle.IsInvalid) throw new Exception("Invalid handle");

        public override void Flush() {}
        public override long Seek(long offset, SeekOrigin origin){return 0;}

        public override void SetLength(long value){}

        public override int Read(byte[] buffer, int offset, int count) {return 0;}
        public override void Write(byte[] buffer, int offset, int count) {}

        public override bool CanRead
            get { return true; }

        public override bool CanSeek
            get  { return true;}

        public override bool CanWrite
            get { return true; }

        public override long Length
            get  { return 0;}

        public override long Position
            get { return 0;}
            set  {}
        protected override void Dispose(bool disposing)
            if(_handle == null) return;
            _handle = null;
            GC.SuppressFinalize (this);

btw there is a small error in code above var_handler should just be _handler.
