A quick scan of the HabariSoft documentation suggests that this is a
STOMP client, and the connections that remain open are STOMP ports

Can you tell whether that succeeds in your case?

Is there any device on the network that intermediates between the broker
and client, and potentially keeping the server connections open? Do you
get the same issue if the broker and client run on the same server
(using localhost)?

Comparing a network trace on the client and the server sides might also
aid diagnosis.

Failing that you should contact the library author. If the problem turns
out to be caused by rabbit then we want to set that right, so please get
back to us if that is the case.
