[zeromq-dev] Even more fun with accept

I was just told that when EMFILE or ENFILE error (the socket limit is
exceeded) is returned from accept the connection isn't purged from the
The consequence is that polling on the listening socket signalises that
there's a pending connection, however, there's no way to accept it
unless some sockets are closed in the meantime.
Such behaviour results in a busy loop desperately trying to accept the
connection, ultimately getting the CPU load to 100%.
Any tips how to solve the problem?
