Yep - my proposed rpl_fcntl is able to work around the bug, so I need to
teach cloexec the same trick.  Thanks for the heads up; I'll have a patch
later today.  I'm considering making cloexec depend on fcntl (so far, my
approach has been that cloexec was standalone, and that fcntl was
optional; but adding the dependency would make use of cloexec drag in
fcntl and allow for code simplification in cloexec).

Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
