The previous code was assuming that a handle would never change from
inheritable to non-inheritable (or conversely) and was protecting it
That's not true anymore and I don't know how to protect in that situation.

I have seen the DEBUGGING_AND_FDS_PROTECTED stuff, but I am not sure
if/how it works.
