If you loose the net connection this is what will happen on QuakeNET, and possible other networks too.

Error from Server [Your host is trying to (re)connect too fast -- throttled]

You then have to remove the server(s) you have added or this will go on forever.

It would be nice if a delay was added if such a message was catched during connect. Maybe increase it with each faulty connect, 60, 120, 180 seconds and so on.

The raw message from IRC reads:

ERROR :Your host is trying to (re)connect too fast --throttled

    Doesnt the ConnectDelay config option solve exactly this problem? (Added to sf.net SVN on 2007-05-17 in rev 799)

    ConnectDelay probably works, but it's a bit hard to know about those changes/new features since they are in SVN and not even documented in the manual, wiki or the changelog on the wiki.

    I guess this can be closed now...
