Are you saying that the actual controller process goes away or that
the TaskClient goes away?

Could you list the events that happen to trigger this?

Also, are you using the blocking (client.py) or the asynchronous
(asyncclient.py) TaskClient?

Yes, this is probably true, but I want to understand more of what
exactly is going on first.
