That is possible, and there is no way to automatically fix this.
Manual workaround: publisher should send a heartbeat ever second
(client should subscribe to those), and if subscriber gets no data and
no heartbeat for >1 second, it closes socket and reconnects. You can
raise or lower frequency of heartbeats depending on needs.
