Ticket #1709 addresses a potential invalid pointer validity test.

The pointer validity comes from an faulty conditional test that could
allow 'NULL' values to pass through, resulting in a null pointer to a
file descriptor causing long-term issues.

The patch for this issue was proposed 5 years ago and the current source
tree contains a fixed validity check, thus making the attached patch

This ticket should be closed and the corresponding issue should be resolved.
