Hum ... I think his problem is :
He is disconnected,
He is waiting (cause he has no message to send) , he believes he is
still online, but he is not .

His only way to know he is disconnected seems to be to write on the
socket ...(KEEPALIVE) 
I don't remember in C ... But in java you can't know a socket is closed
on the other side when u try to read it, only way is to write in it.

The connections to the servers and other clients are
all TCP-based.  There is no specific disconnect
message when you lose a connection, however there is
no need for one, either.  Your code should be able to automatically
detect that immediately anytime you try to access an invalided socket.
