      Problem code:

                  catch ( std::exception& e ) {
      
                      if ( inShutdown() ) {
                          // we're shutting down, so just clean up
                          return;
                      }
      
                      log() << "WriteBackListener exception : " << e.what() << endl;
      
                      // It's possible this shard was removed
                      Shard::reloadShardInfo();
                  }
      

      Note that reloadShardInfo can also throw exceptions and since it is not handled in the run method, the writeback listener thread would just terminate. Sample scenarios that reloadShardInfo can throw is when config servers are unreachable.
