First of all, WSAENOTSOCK is not unexpected, it's tested for explicitly
(and thenlibev verifies all fds), and secondly, libev will ev_syserr on
any unexpected error, which by default will abort.

Are we really looking at the same library?

It was my call, which is why libev will abort on unexpected errors by
default, unless the user overrides ev_syserr.
