Bug Unity Transport issue with disconnects and new connections

    I'm encountering issues in the Unity Transport package (0.4.1-preview.1) after having disconnects and new connections.

    I am able to reproduce it with the NetCube sample. I made a Win-Client build, ran the server in Unity Editor, and launched clients and closed them and opened new ones.

    With NetCube, if I limited it to only 1 client ever connected at a time, the problem was not reproducible. It seems to require having had a disconnect and then connecting a 2nd simultaneous client. In my own project, it is reproducible from 1 client connecting, disconnecting, and connecting again. The error and callstack are different from what happens in NetCube.

    Reproduction Steps using NetCube:
    1. Launch standalone NetCube server
    2. Launch first NetCube client
    3. Launch second NetCube client
    4. Close second NetCube client
    5. Launch third NetCube client

    Here is the error and callstack that gets spammed after this:

    This is from my own project, and the error comes from the ReliableSequenced pipeline code.

    I've had the same problem but without errors.

    Completely new project, 2 files: Host and Client. Copy pasted straight from transport package Getting Started.

    Slight modification to client, a button that reconnects.

    First connection - disconnection works. Nothing out of the ordinary.

    Second connection - disconnection fails. Connection works but disconnection just doesnt seem to be recieved by Host. It's a LocalHost, there should be no network issues.

    Force reading from this orphaned connection on Host-side causes a whole bunch of errors. So the connection doesnt actually exist but no disconnection was sent.

    ScheduleUpdate() nor ScheduleFlushSend() seem to do anything Client or Host side. No difference adding or removing them.

    Restarting the client program while maintaining the host allows for reconnection. This makes me think it's something I'm not calling at disconnect to clear some sort of buffer causing memory leak in the client side. But the only method available is .Disconnect(driver) and I'm calling that. I even destroyed the driver a frame / Systembase cycle later to prevent race conditions with the driver being destroyed before disconnect is called.

    Internal memory leak? Am I just bad at copy pasting? Am I doing something wrong with my reconnect code, the rest of the code is copy pasted from Getting Started Jobify Client and Server code:

    Code (CSharp):
    1. protected override void OnCreate()
    2. {
    3.      RequireSingletonForUpdate<ClientActive>();
    4. }
    6. protected override void OnStartRunning()
    7. {
    8.     Debug.LogError("Client Started!");
    10.     if (_netDriver.IsCreated)
    11.         Debug.LogError("ERROR: Net driver already created.");
    13.     _netDriver = NetworkDriver.Create();
    14.     _netDriver.CreatePipeline();
    16.     var endPoint = NetworkEndPoint.Parse(TargetServerIP, 9568);
    17.     _connection = new NativeArray<NetworkConnection>(1, Allocator.Persistent)
    18.     {
    19.         [0] = _netDriver.Connect(endPoint)
    20.     };
    22.     Debug.LogError($"Connection formed to {endPoint.Address}.");
    23. }
    25. protected override void OnUpdate()
    26. {
    27.     Dependency = _netDriver.ScheduleUpdate(Dependency);
    28.     Dependency = _netDriver.ScheduleFlushSend(Dependency);
    30.     var driver = _netDriver;
    31.     var connection = _connection;
    32.     Job
    33.         .WithCode(() =>
