linux_sendfile issue in 13-p3 whereas 12.1 was working fine.

I've recently upgraded to FreeBSD 13.0-RELEASE-p3 from 12.1

There appears to be a problem with Factorio which is a game from
Linux, FreebSD 12 worked okay.
This does need a different glibc, which I use via patchelf on the
binary I run, I use 2.18 and some other libs, but that was not a
problem in FreeBSD 12 and all worked well for many hours at a time.

Now it appears to fail on a linux_sendfile call with socket operation
on non socket.

This was working a before the upgrade, so it seems that something in
linux_sendfile() has changed in 13 that was working in 12.

There is an error message in the program I am running that says:

Error while running reload_script: filesystem error: copy_file
"/home/steve/factorio/data/base/scenarios/freeplay/control.lua" to
Socket operation on non-socket

I have included a truss -f output below that shows what it is doing as
best as I can get at the moment.

Can anyone pinpoint the error and help resolve it please.

many thanks,

Steve Roome

The truss shows:
