You're quite right -- that's pretty terrible. We've filed a bug to
change this so that auth failures end up holding the connection open for
a few seconds before closing the socket. This will help avoid accidental
DoSs of this kind. (Libraries of course can still be improved along the
lines I suggested in my previous message, independent of server changes
like this.)
