What steps will reproduce the problem? (intermittent)
1.  Start sharing desktop
2.  Click stop sharing

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
On the presenter's client, sometimes a viewing desktop window will appear 
after the sharing desktop window closes.

I noticed on the server that the client would show 
an empty view desktop window (as if you were viewing another presenter) on 
login -- even when there was no one else in the session.   Starting a new 
desktop sharing window filled the empty view desktop window (now saw both 
the thumbnail share desktop window and resulting view desktop window).   
Closing the share desktop window closed both windows (share and view).

Looks like the server can get into a state where it thinks there is someone 
else sharing a desktop.

This is related to issue 170, but in this case the view desktop window stayed active

between sessions.

This issue is likely on the server, where the stream is not being closed properly. I
am not sure what the proper fix is, I can also not recreate the bug

I noticed a somehow comparable issue:
