Done. Created pull request #193:

Yes, it is the pipe for error handling. I found the ignore_error
setting, which also worked, but needed to be applied to all calls, which
was not ideal.

I see that PR #77 was just merged which added a ::close() call to fix
the same issue that I'm looking at. However, there are still some paths
that return from _read_error() without closing the pipe, so I'm
proposing to move the ::close() call outside of _read_error(), so it
doesn't have to be handled in all return cases.
