should openssh close sockets when closing a socket forwarded connection?

Openssh doesn't seem to close sockets on disconnect when forwarding
sockets.  Should openssh handle the close of the remote side of the
forwarded socket?  Openssh also does not overwrite a socket file if
forwarding.  This makes forwarding sockets a bit hard.
