use only accepted ran_conns for new transactions
In connection_for_subscriber(), do not return a ran_conn that is not yet authenticated nor one that is already in release. Using a ran_conn that is not yet authenticated may cause an auth/ciph violation. Using a ran_conn that is already in release may cause a use-after-free, see OS#3842 for a description. To be paranoid, upon releasing a conn, go through the transaction freeing motions again by calling trans_conn_closed(), just in case some odd code path added another transaction while the conn was already in release.
