Thank you for your comments and suggestion.
My intention was also to avoid unnecessary and failed operations 
if disconnection was detected.
Ok, let me research more and do better.

Thank you for you comments.
I also tested "unbound" and stop and unbind operations were correctly 
executed. I just wanted to avoid the issues during disconnection, if other 
operations are commanded later I think it is better to warn.
Ok, I will try to do better.

Best regards
Jose Ignacio
