      I found this in 3.4.5, but a quick perusal of the code suggests this exists in later versions as well.

      Setup: I'm running some ZooKeeper SASL tests with Hadoop's MiniKDC under Solr's test framework, which checks for things like thread leaks. The thread leak checker is complaining about the Login thread, which is created but never shut down. It's started here:
      https://github.com/apache/zookeeper/blob/6ebd23b32d2cf606e01906bee4460bf79eb7f3fa/src/java/main/org/apache/zookeeper/client/ZooKeeperSaslClient.java#L227 and you can verify via reading the code that it is never shut down.

      This may be intentional, because the Login object is static, so it is probably supposed to stick around for the lifetime of the application. This is not great for a test setup, where the idea is that a cluster and all associated clients are started/stopped for each test suite. You wouldn't want either:
      1) a thread stick around doing nothing, or
      2) sticking around doing something (because it makes the first suite that happens to run behave differently than subsequents suites).

      in addition, this only happens with SASL clients, so we'd want to only turn off the leak checker if we are running under SASL (so we don't miss other leaked threads), which is a bit more complexity than I would like.

      I'd be happy with a function I could call to say "I'm really done, close down everything, even in the Login thread" or some automatic way of doing it.
