(bug report not visible yet)
changes for 7082769 fix have led to behavioral changes which can lead to
native file descriptor exhaustion. Basically - file descriptors are not
released until all streams referencing them are closed.
For the short term, we should backout the 7082769 changes until a full
solution which doesn't cause issue in terms of compatibility is found.
I'm hoping to get this change into 7u2.
