    clients stop receiving messages when client failure check period = 1 and one client does not exit cleanly

      In my testing of 2.1.0, I ran across a case where I have a server sending messages to multiple clients and one of the clients does not end cleanly, after a certain amount of time the clients that are still running stop receiving messages.  This started showing up when I set the client failure check period to -1.


      I've attached a tar file that has the test case, source, etc.  To replicate the problem:


      - start the server with server.sh.

      - start a producer with producer.sh.

      - start a client with client.sh.

      - start a second client with client.sh - now with the client.sh, hit ctrl-c to kill the one client.


      After a certain amount of time, the server will spit out the following message:


      WARNING: Connection failure has been detected: Did not receive ping from / It is likely the client has exited or crashed without closing its connection, or the network between the server and client has failed. The connection will now be closed. [code=3]


      At this point, all clients stop receiving messages.  I would expect that the server would clean up the resources for the dead client and not stop messages from being sent to other clients.


      This is not a big deal for me as I don't use the client failure check period, but happened to run across it during testing.
