It shouldn't, i.e. the client should see the socket close. etimedout is 
the kind of error that is indicative of network problems though, and in 
some cases these can take quite a while to be noticed by the parties. 
Configuring the clients to enable AMQP heartbeats is one way of 
addressing that problem.
