#945 closed enhancement (fixed)

skyped: do not leak listening socket to skype

set FD_CLOEXEC on listening socket

Skype4Py uses os.execlp() to spawn skype if it is not yet started, this leaks our listening FD to skype process and can't get it back even if we ourself exit meanwhile.

and we can't startup again: error: [Errno 98] Address already in use
