Bug Description

Dear all,

In a setup where cf-agent is started by cf-execd and where cf-agent updates its promises from a remote location, if network connection fails for whatever reason during the cf-agent run, cf-agent will crash.
I cannot say exactly when though...

Audit always reports such error:
node=rose-playground type=ANOM_ABEND msg=audit(1427331215.144:55001): auid=0 uid=0 gid=0 ses=114 pid=24294 comm="cf-agent" reason="memory violation" sig=6

While the email sent by cf-execd can be:
!! Could not close socket
 !!! System error for cf_closesocket: "Bad file descriptor"
*** Error in `/var/lib/cfengine3/bin/cf-agent': free(): invalid pointer: 0x0000000001b37110 ***

*** Error in `/var/lib/cfengine3/bin/cf-agent': double free or corruption (!prev): 0x0000000001620ab0 ***
