Description of problem:

A seg fault occurs in the client library when reopening a connection after reports of lack of available file handles.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

100% with attached reproducer

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start broker
2. run attached test case
Actual results:

core dump

Expected results:

no core dump

Additional info:

If when opening a connection there is only one file handle remaining, the socket for the connection is created, but the fds required for the poller's readable pipe are not available. Initialisation of the connectors Poller object fails and the AsynchIO object is left uninitialised. However the closed flag has already been set to false so when the associated connector is then deleted (e.g. on reopening the connection), it tries to shutdown the AsynchIO object which has not been initialised and there is a segfault.
