Summary0000401: more control over discarded output
Descriptionthis is how comm.c:add_message() handles the case of output lost in transmission
as reported by a EINTR or EWOULDBLOCK. additionally we get some stderr warnings.

    if (ip->msg_discarded)
        ip->msg_discarded = MY_FALSE;
        add_message("%s", "\n*** Text lost in transmission ***\n");
        /* msg_discarded might be TRUE again now */

i would prefer it the interactive or at least the master object was called
instead, and given as much information as possible on the event. then it can
decide to either recover the network link, or to drop it. but having a string
output which is meaningless to most protocols other than telnet, is not exactly
the solution these days... :-/

In r2551 a driver hook was implemented, that is called after messages had to be discarded.

I haven't noticed it since then, but I did not use Mantis much, because vacations and not enough time.
