Attaching to a session that doesn't have a current trace chunk results
in a crash when the viewer streams are created from a NULL viewer
trace chunk.

Live clients are prevented from attaching to sessions without a
current trace chunk as those sessions are either being destroyed or
too young to have a trace chunk, meaning that they don't have streams
yet. Live clients will receive the "unknown" status code that they
already receive when asking an unknown session. Since such sessions
are not listed, this shouldn't change any exposed behaviour.
