Overview

Sender is using a companion thread to flush and pack messages in a `MessageBuffer`. The communication with this thread is done using a `Queue`. If the thread is dead, it is starting a new one to avoid having a blocked Sender with no companion thread to communicate with (most of the time, having a dead companion thread means that a fork just happened and that we are running in the child process).
