I'm using the latest beta5 release (for Gaim 2.0 Beta
3) for this report.

The following scenario, Gaim-encryption does not
automatically resend a sent message to the recipient.

1) UserA and UserB chat with gaim-encryption enabled.

2) UserB signs off, and UserA does not close the chat
window.

3) UserB signs back on at a later time.

4) UserA sends UserB a message (encryption should
still be enabled).

5) Output window displays the following message
(without flashing the taskbar alert [Windows] to note
an event in the chat window): "Last outgoing message
not received properly- resetting", and the recipient
never receives the actual message, though if they
happen to check the chat window they will be able to
see that they received a message that could not be
decrypted.

The encryption is indeed reset, but shouldn't the
message be automatically resent as well (as it is in
other circumstances)? If this is not technically a
bug, it is at the least an inconsistency, so I guess
then this could be considered as a request.
