Bug Description

Cloning happens typically when a customer configures and register the Landscape client in a VM (e.g. a cloud instance) and then create an image out of that VM. Any further VM spawned using that image will have a Landscape client running which pretends to be the same of the original one, and the server will start getting messages with messed up sequence numbers (triggering a lot of resynchronizations).
