What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. As presenter, Start desktop sharing
2. While desktop sharing is going on, assign someone else as presenter

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
The other participant becomes presenter and no screenshare view window 
should appear on old presenter's client.

Please use labels and text to provide additional information.
THe reason for this is that data is still being sent to the server. When 
the old presenter becomes a viewer, the client queries the server is there 
is a screenshare stream which there will be. So the old presenter receives 
the tail end of the screenshare stream.
