Note that the daemon is multi-threaded.  If the connection is
established concurrently with deleting configs (which it looks like in
the log) the thread creating the SA might already have a reference to
the config.  And established connections are not affected by config
changes.  So you'll have to "down" any existing connections manually
after deleting a config.
