ngx_write_chain_to_file cannot be closed file when ngx_write_file returns NGX_ERROR.
It seems to be a same issue below. I'm not sure why here is to be missing file closing.

Since ngx_write_chain_to_file() does not open the file, it's not its responsibility to close it.

Thanks comment.
In case ngx_write_chain_to_file has been called by ngx_event_pipe which returns NGX_ABORT for failing ngx_write_file(in this case, ngx_event_pipe is only called from ngx_http_upstream, all of them return ngx_http_upstream_finalize_request(r, u, NGX_ERROR); ), I considered that it should be closed the file stream to prevent from resource leaks.
It might have another procedure which sweep and close file stream which remains opening, but I cannot find it.

All files opened during request processing are bound to the request pool, and closed automatically once the request is freed.
