Ah, perhaps I'm misreading the Java code. It looks like it operates in the FAQ manner except
it adds a watch for a non-existent node so that it can register a watcher for when it gets
the next event... which is *assumed* to be a session being lost. The sessionLostWatch will
get triggered for any session event, including a connection loss. I don't see anywhere that
the original client is watched specifically to see that it has gotten a EXPIRED_SESSION_STATE

In the error I described originally, the first client *will* get its connection dropped, but
will not actually be expired. If I was only watching for any event, and not specifically an
expired session state, then my tests would appear to work.

I mainly program in Python, so its likely I'm missing something in how the Java ZK client
or Curator works. Can you explain the technique here a little more?
