      This is basically QPID-8179 again.

      We are using qpid_messaging to communicate with an ActiveMQ broker using the amqp1.0 protocol.

      We have noticed during both large scale tests and in production that our program sometimes hangs when it is closing the connection to the broker. This is a very rare occurrence, but happens often enough to be annoying, especially when it happens in production.

      While the design of the amqp1.0 implementation is generally nice, I have noticed a lack of life cycle management for the helper objects, especially the ones interacting with background threads. The background thread is shut down when closing the last remaining connection, but not enough care is being taken to make sure it is in a safe state to do so.

      If an event is being processed when the connection is closed, then a deadlock might occur, as seen in this stack-trace:

      Thread 1 (Thread 0x7fbaa5857880 (LWP 47152)):
      #0  0x00007fbaa1428965 in pthread_cond_wait@@GLIBC_2.3.2 () from /lib64/libpthread.so.0
      #1  0x00007fba7e872c72 in qpid::sys::Condition::wait(qpid::sys::Mutex&) () from /opt/jeppesen/jcms/lib/x86_64_linux/libqpidcommon.so.2
      #2  0x00007fba7e878c0b in qpid::sys::TimerTask::cancel() () from /opt/jeppesen/jcms/lib/x86_64_linux/libqpidcommon.so.2
      #3  0x00007fba7f2ad056 in qpid::messaging::amqp::ConnectionContext::close() () from /opt/jeppesen/jcms/lib/x86_64_linux/libqpidmessaging.so.2

      In addition, we often see this in our logs just before the hang:
