Ping timeout problems
« on: April 03, 2009, 09:32:10 AM »
I love Ice chat, but i've spotted a couple of small problems with it:

1. It consistently fails to notice a failure in the connection. The server will drop the conncetion due to a ping timeout, but the client doesn't notice anything until i try to send or request anything.  Now i have noticed it periodically does try to ping itself via query which brings me onto the next point:

2. In umode +g this automatic self-pinging creates a lot of console spam if the server doesn't automatically deliver queries to self.

3. UI point: there seems to be some issue with multi-line message formatting, particularly on messages such as CIA's Commit bot messages. Despite a format clear character on the first line, the second line appears in colour and bold

Other than that, looking forward to IC9 :-)

It might help to turn on 'Show server lag in console' in the server editor
