Could you provide more information about the timing? Does the signer
keep doing things after all tasks are completed?

What I've seen on 1.2.0 is the process that reads the control socket
(engine.sock) crashes for some reason, so there is no listener on the
line. Any signer client sending commands on the socket will get blocked.

I suggest you to debug the execution of the signer in order to rule out
this scenario. For example, try to start the signer on no-daemonize mode
(-d) and with one worker thread and see if it's crashes.
