No, this is known issue. The symptom is that connections that were shut
while blocked remain visible in the output of
"rabbitmqctl list_connections"

No workaround is known at the moment, and the problem appears very
difficult to solve so a solution is not likely to be released soon. The
release notes will contain an announcement when it gets fixed.
