I have changed the code to report any error that occurs in receiving message,

and it reports: [WinError10054] An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host

Well, this error is the one we need to handle, right? A server need to deal with abrupt offlines of clients. Yes the romote host has dropped and connection has been broken, but that does not mean we cannot recall its address. 

If this is not a bug, I don't know what is a bug in socket module.
