When launching a short lived UST app in a per-pid session, the sessiond gets an error on the consumer socket and seems to forget the channel configuration. Note that in this scenario, I did not connect to the relayd with Babeltrace but if I try afterwards BT don't see any session to connect to.

Here is my channel configuration and how I launched the app:

lttng create claudia_normand_2 --live
lttng enable-channel --buffers-pid -u chan1
lttng enable-event -u -a -c chan1
lttng start
./a.out &

After running this I can't see the channel configuration when I run lttng status:

Tracing session claudia_normand_2: [active]
    Trace output: tcp4:// [data: 5343]

=== Domain: UST global ===

Buffer type: per PID

Here are the errors in the sessiond log:

I am using this version of the lttng: lttng (LTTng Trace Control) 2.12.0-pre - Codename TBD - v2.11.0-rc1-549-g93d0d1f7d

I attached the full log of the sessiond and relayd.
