hi... i've noticed there 2 messages showing up, and i'm trying to determine what's exactly is the difference between them, i think the first (socket closed) appears only after a socket was opened and was closed by another thread before it was used, while the second shows up in case a socket is used but was never opened.
I agree. Here's the link:
