Hmm...  Do you see the same issue if you use a Racket custodian to
clean up the resources?

The Systems tutorial talks about custodians a bit:


Your code would't have to change too much: it'd look something like:

   (define cust (make-custodian))
   (parameterize ([current-custodian cust])

       ;; .. your code, which opens ports and does other stuff

       (custodian-shutdown-all cust))

If you open ports in the context of a custodian, that custodian takes
responsibility for cleaning up resources when custodian-shutdown-all
gets called.
