[PATCH] Decrement backend counters on a connection close

I have been too optimistic. While this solved one of my issues, it
didn't take pipe into account.

A pipe must hold a ref to a backend until the session is actually
closed, because it will increment the relevant counters. After playing
around with the backend's refcount, trying to inc/decrement it in all
code paths, I didn't come to a satisfying result. I still have 2 test
cases (1 pipe-related) where a backend hot swap (outside of the cli
thread) fails.

This patch is no good, it doesn't solve anything.

Best Regards,
