AttributeError: 'MQTTClient' object has no attribute '_send_str'

  • Here is something strange that I just can't wrap my mind around. I am using the stock umqtt.robust and everything works fine for a couple hours. Then all of the sudden I get below exception. Once code exits into REPL, I can verify that '_send_str' is an attribute of my MQTTClient instance.
