Description of problem:
The ruby QMF console will repeatedly attempt to use bad credentials instead of failing. (Observed in wallaby-utils.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run a QMF console application, e.g. wallaby-inventory, with bad supplied credentials
The tool attempts to use the bad credentials indefinitely
The tool repeat the same message over and over again
'warning Broker closed connection: 320, connection-forced: Authentication failed'
The QMF engine should raise an exception after some configurable number of failed authentication attempts.
