The rotation thread implements scheduled rotations (by size) by
registering a trigger that monitors the session's consumed size and
notifies when the next rotation's size threshold is exceeded.

The notification is delivered asynchronously which doesn't prevent
the session from being destroyed before the rotation thread has
had the time to process the notification (and perform a rotation).

Since it is possible for a session to be destroyed by the time the
notification is processed, the rotation thread shouldn't handle
this eventuality as a fatal error (shutting down the thread).

Note that nobody reported this issue nor did I attempt to reproduce it.
