Yes. The question is what "forcibly" means. On TCP connections, when the
peer sends a RST, ECONNRESET makes complete sense: the stream is not
finished, it was really interrupted. What would be the equivalent for a
local socket?

I played a bit with Linux, and found the attached case to be returning
ECONNRESET, but it's not clear to me why that precise case should do
this. In such case OpenBSD returns 0.

#include <sys/socket.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>

int main(void) {
	int sv[2];
	char buf[128];

	socketpair(PF_LOCAL, SOCK_STREAM, 0, sv);
	if (fork()) {
		int ret = read(sv[0], buf, sizeof(buf));
		if (ret < 0)
			printf("got %d bytes\n", ret);
	} else {
		write(sv[0], buf, sizeof(buf));
	return 0;
