I don't know, but I suspect that if you run a gets followed by an  fblocked on the channel, you will get:

0 return from fblocked if all is OK
1 return if the channel is open but there's not enough data available
an error if the channel is closed.

You can catch the error to prevent your program crashing - the catch action being whatever you need to do when the channel has been remotely closed.
