  "Since close_stdout is commonly registered via 'atexit', [...]"

close_stdout is used right before the process ends, so I don't see
what further actions would follow.

It seems to me that you're trying to prevent programming errors.
So even the programmer knows his/her code, or maybe he can try
some static code analyzers to find this issue.
Is there a recent case which fell into this (quite obvious) trap?

Have a nice day,
