[rabbitmq-discuss] Rabbitmq-C amqp_basic_publish crash on connection loss

If used correctly, rabbitmq-c should not cause your program to terminate.

I would need a bit more information by what you mean by "program
terminated" to help you diagnose your issue. Did it segfault? Did it
abort()? If so, is there a callstack indicating where this happened?

No, and even if there was, its entirely possible that the connection could
be closed between the time the program checked to see if the connection was
open and the time amqp_basic_publish() was called.

amqp_connection_state_t objects are only allocated with
amqp_new_connection(), and only deallocated with amqp_destroy_connection().
No other function in rabbitmq-c should change the external facing value of
an amqp_connection_state_t. Its an opaque pointer.

pattern in use here.
