Unfortunately there’s nothing wrong on the Monasca side so far as we know.
 We test new versions of the kafka-python library outside of Monasca
before we bother to try integrating a new version.  Since 1.0 the
kafka-python library has suffered from crashes and memory leaks severe
enough that we’ve never attempted using it in Monasca itself.  We reported
the bugs we found to the kafka-python project but they were closed once
they released a new version.
