Issue #1 wontfix

library does not detect that connection is lost

Platform: Linux

The server shows a ping timeout but if the packet closing the connection is lost, it appears that the client never "notices" that it's gone offline.

Client side ping not supported, so making the user of the library able to check for this isn't simple either.

    The reporter doesn't give any indication of how this could be addressed and in fact indicates that it may not be possible to address it. Until such a time as we have a concrete suggestion, I'm marking this as won't fix.
