You're mixing up various things here, I'll try to sort them out below. Anyway,
possible bug reports like these are better off on lwip-devel and even better in
the bug tracker.

This is what O_NONBLOCK is for. There might be bugs that prevent correct
behaviour of nonblocking close, but adding yet another config option to check
this is not a good idea.

I'm curious, how can this happen? RST segments should normally be sent out
right away, since they are asynchronous events. There should not be any RST on
the unsent/unacked lists. And I can't find code in the current sources that
would do this.

Isn't this what the 'current_msg' member is used for already at multilpe
places? The fact that the code you added to err_tcp() makes things better (if
it really does?) looks like hiding an lwIP or port bug to me...

Now this is really a possible bug in the intercommunication between tcp and the
netconn API. However, I'd like to get a more detailed report on how it can
happen that the netconn API waits on a TIME_WAIT pcb. Which netconn function is
blocking on the pcb when waking it up in this state?
