With that patch applied, I got an AttributeError about `stop()` not being defined.

However, while playing around with it, I noticed that my earlier observation was wrong, and it appears `socket.timeout` is being raised at the right times after all.

This gave me the idea however to forcibly close the socket at that point, like in your patch, as in so:

diff --git a/rocket/ b/rocket/
index e1a522b..3d2e9b1 100644
--- a/rocket/
+++ b/rocket/
@@ -165,6 +165,7 @@ class Listener(Thread):
                 if not self.ready:
                     if __debug__:
                         self.err_log.debug('Listener exiting.')
+ self.listener.shutdown(socket.SHUT_RDWR)

This also still makes the reproduction case stop failing! I then ran some more testing, and as far as I could see, it doesn't appear like this causes any bad side effects.

I made some long running requests, and had Rocket stopping while these requests were still being processed. The server nicely waited to complete the requests before completely shutting down, and didn't cause connections to be cut off in the middle.

So I think this is the correct way to do it.
