FTP Agent: SFTP connection is left open when using the same connection object in HostA and HostB

CA Automic Workload Automation - Automation Engine
When using the same connection object in HostA/From and HostB/To, a connection is left open.
This can happen while transferring a file, but also when only executing the command "ls".
This will eventually add up and use up memory and the FTP agent will go down due to heap size growing too large.
The RA FTP Agent did not close both connections after copying a file using the same connection object for both connections.
