[rabbitmq-discuss] Rabbitmq 2.5-2.6.1 java hanging on close of connection

Here is the stacktrace from the running test cases. I just ran the
test cases 4 times without a hang on the same vm , then last 3 times
it hangs.

The tests hang for 20 minutes then the junit run kills the jvm for
timeout exception.

In the rabbitmq log it is just says the connection abruptly close at
the same time of the junit runner killed the unit tests.

I was going to attempt to put a timeout on the connection close method
but that really would be a hack.

The stacktrace is exactly the same as this one

Also before the test cases are run I reinstall rabbitmq , delete all
vhosts and recreate them . So there should not be any memory issues .

The only thread that is in the RUNNABLE state is at the beginning of
the the stacktrace. I realize this is causing the hang but I don't
understand why no reply is getting through from rabbit.

at java.net.SocketInputStream.socketRead0(Native Method)
at java.net.SocketInputStream.read(SocketInputStream.java:129)

Searching the interwebs points to the remote server not responding.

I can hook up wireshark next to try to diagnose the problem , but I
thought tracer class would be sufficient.
