As of today, the discrepancy is still not fixed.

The manual here:

is still saying:

Even if cancelled, the finish callback will still be invoked
--end quote

eio.c is not
changed either:

#ifndef EIO_FINISH
# define EIO_FINISH(req)  ((req)->finish) && !EIO_CANCELLED (req) ? (req)->finish (req) : 0

Link "File releases" at
pointing at is dead.
