This is not a bug. See module 28 (where a_close and friends are
defined), which explicitly says that they "should not generate error
messages if a file is being closed before it has been successfully opened".
So it's expected that a_close may be used in this way, and it's up to
the implementor on any given system to ensure this is OK.
