Thanks for the report and fix. This sounds a like a corner case, but
anyway, getting connected after the last disconnect command is not
really expected behavior. I applied this to 0.6.x branch.

The same patch seems to apply to 0.5.x branch with some fuzz and offset
differences. Was there something else that needed to be done for 0.5.x
or is that the only part of backporting needed?
