fileevent removal

Is the proper way to _remove_ a fileevent handle like so?:
        (fileevent port "readable" "")

It seems that this does not gc the environment consumed by
the handle. For example, one thing I've noticed is that
ports were not being closed and gc'd if you do something like
    (fileevent port "readable"
        (let ((proc (run-process ....)))
            (fileevent (process-output proc) "readable"
                (lambda ()
                   (format #t "Been there, done that~%")))))

(thanks to EG's debugging statements:
        EG: On efface le fichier associe' a 10 #file-10
        EG: ON ajoute un callback #file10056668 readable
