Subject Re: Receiver Socket connection/reconnect problems (was RE: reconnecting to SocketHubAppender)

Paul, et al,

Thanks for reporting and tracking down this bug!  But just to be clear, the
Receiver is going to attempt the reconnect, right?  Not the appender?  The
whole point of the SocketHubAppender it that it does not spend any
time/resources trying to reconnect socket connections, that way it is less
of a resource drain on the source side.  That and it is more flexible to
connect to than SocketAppender.  I just want to make sure.

thanks,
-Mark
