I've made a patch to handle epoll/kqueue differently, to fix one  
specific crash in torrent::poll*Poll::perform, which may also fix  
this if it's the same problem (specifically, libcurl/c-ares saying  
they would close a socket but then not actually closing it and  
rtorrent receiving poll events on a socket it has discarded).
