digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 14995] New: std.mmfile incorrectly handles errors in ctor


          Issue ID: 14995
           Summary: std.mmfile incorrectly handles errors in ctor
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: phobos

If the MmFile ctor fails, it will often close the file but leave the fd field
set. This will cause its destructor to later attempt to close it again, which
will either cause an exception (which in turn will likely result in an
InvalidMemoryOperationError), or close an unrelated file with the same
coincidental fd.
