What I Wanted to Do

Whenever i use a package version from npm that does not exist yet i need to fail fast.

What Happened Instead

Currently the error gets thrown but the process hangs around for up what seems to be a random set of minutes

Reproduction Steps

npm install react@99.99.99

This is probably some kind of hiccup with the shutdown process or some fd staying open.
