fcc_close doesn't look like it's doing anything wrong, so it's
probably somewhere else where the error is really happening and it's
manifesting itself here.  Running with electric fence or purify is
probably the best way of catching this.  I'm afraid I haven't had the
time to do this recently.  If you have occasion to do this before I do
it, feel free the send me the output.
