 My ticket23573 branch has some draft code that implements this issue.
 It also has the `sleep(1);` that fixes #23570.

 If we want to add these checks that our connection shutdown code works, I
 can revise it and write a changes file. It would be useful for chutney,
 which doesn't rotate connections in the short time it's running a network.

 Or we can just let the OS do the connection cleanup for us.
