broker debug information

when ues Paho.MQTT to connect to broker with cleanSession flag set as false, and subscribe a topic with qos=1, and then disconnect, messages queued will not be received when the client reconnect to the broker, however, when i use a mqtt client with the same client id to connect then, the queued messages is received.

the attachment is the broker's debug information, the connection from localhost is created by mosquitto_pub or mosquitto_sub, and others is created by websocket(Paho.MQTT.Client).

I just found and analyzed the same problem. Websockets subscriber does not receive
queued messages after cleansession=NO, disconnect, reconnect immediately after
reconnect, but only when a new message is published while Websockets subscriber is connected.

Steps to recreate:
0 connect with cleansession=NO, client gets sessionpresent=NO, subscribe QoS=1, abort
1 connect with cleansession=NO, client gets sessionpresent=YES, subscribe QoS=1, abort
2 connect with other client, publish message 1 QoS=1
3 connect with cleansession=NO, client gets sessionpresent=YES, subscribe QoS=1

MQTT now receives queued message, WS client doesn't

4 connect with cleansession=NO, client gets sessionpresent=YES, subscribe QoS=1
5 connect with other client, publish message 2 QoS=1

WS client now receives message 1 and message 2

(see commented mosquitto.log attached)

Broker: mosquitto 1.4.8
MQTT-Client: mosquitto_sub/pub 1.4.8
WS-Client: MQTT-Client iOS

SHA: bf959ef is the head of master, not of fixes. Could you confirm you tried with the fixes branch?
