When running mysql-proxy behind a load balanced VIP the proxy crashes when the CSS performs its TCP health check.  This can also be reproduced from the command line.

The backtrace from the crash is pasted below:

How to repeat:

This is easily repeatable.  Start the proxy up and telnet to the ip:port from another session.  Close the session using ctrl-] and the proxy will crash.

Thank you for the report.

Verified as described. Starting with rw-splitting.lua is required to repeat the problem.
