SubmissionPublisher - Subscriber#onComplete() not invoked when publisher is closed

Thanks for all responses.

I understand how it works and it makes sense, but I believe the javadoc 
is not exact; SubsmissionPublisher#close doesn't mention any condition 
for the Subscriber#onComplete() invocation, but there obviously is one.

Thanks again,
