Yes, I remember this and also reviewed it for Joe. My point about it not 
coming up before was in the context of BufferedWriter/etc where close 
needs to flush. In that case then I think it would be more typically to 
throw a new IOException each time.

I'll leave to Joe to comment on suggestion to drop self suppression.
