This is a change I'm interested in seeing merge in Kilo.

I believe the risk is small due to the small number of lines of code and 
the good test coverage.

The risk of NOT fixing this in Kilo is that some deployments will leak 
share_servers and waste a possibly large amount of resources. This 
leaking has been observed in my test environment, and the only 
workaround is for the administrator to periodically check share_servers 
and delete them.

I view the current behaviour has a bug, despite the fact that the change 
is advertised as a feature with a blueprint.

Since I'm in favor of this change, I'd like other community members to 
weigh in on the risks of fixing this vs. not fixing this in Kilo.
