             Summary: proton-c ServerTest.testIdleTimeout sometimes fails, 
causing test suite to hang forever
                 Key: PROTON-326
             Project: Qpid Proton
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: proton-c
    Affects Versions: 0.4
         Environment: Linux
            Reporter: Philip Harvey

I ran the python test suite against proton-c today and noticed that 
ServerTest.testIdleTimeout failed with the following output:

proton_tests.engine.ServerTest.testIdleTimeout ..........................ERROR 
amqp:resource-limit-exceeded local-idle-timeout expired
Error during test:  Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "./tests/python/proton-test", line 340, in run
    File "/.../workspace/proton/tests/python/proton_tests/", line 
1412, in testIdleTimeout
      assert self.conn.state == (Endpoint.LOCAL_ACTIVE | 
Endpoint.REMOTE_ACTIVE), "Connection terminated"
  AssertionError: Connection terminated

This test usually succeeds so I guess it contains a race condition.

Something that is arguably more problematic is that this failure causes the 
test suite to hang. The suite proceeds to run the other tests, but does not 
terminate when it reaches the end. On Linux, I actually had to kill the process 
rather than ctrl-c-ing it.  

I cannot reproduce the test failure, but I do find that if I make it fail (for 
example, by modifying the assert on line 1412 to always fail) then the suite 
hangs every time.

It's obviously undesirable for a failing test to cause the entire suite to hang.
