When waiting for a connection to timeout and you click on a mumble URL in a browser, the mumble client becomes completely unresponsive. This lag continues until the connection times out. You cannot opt to cancel the connection as the entire client locks up. Currently on 1.2.2 client have not tested with 1.2.3. OS is Windows 7 x64.

    I can't reproduce on 1.2.3 - can you give that version a shot? I'm on Win7 x64 too, and it aborts the old connection just fine.

    Updated to 1.2.3. Reproduced by:
    1- Clicking on a URL with an invalid port
    2-Clicking on a URL with a valid port for the same server while it is still trying to connect to the invalid URL.

    I'm not sure if it was waiting or what, but it took 10-15 seconds between the two steps to connect, which is better than last time which was nearly a minute (on 1.2.2). Connecting normally is instantaneous.

    For troubleshooting, here are the two links:

    Invalid: mumble://houseofstrix.etshost.com:64378/Everquest/House%20of%20Strix/General%20Chat?version=1.2.3

    Valid: mumble://houseofstrix.etshost.com:64738/Everquest/House%20of%20Strix/General%20Chat?version=1.2.3

    Yeah, again - I can't reproduce it. I was using mumble://fwaggle@10.0.69.69/ (a non-existent host on my LAN), and then reconnecting to my known-working server just fine. I then tried yours (with the incorrect port) and was able to reconnect to my working server no problems or hangs.

    I even tried doing it from the command prompt, and it still didn't hang. It takes like a second or so, but clicking Mumble URLs has always done that for me. I wonder what's going on here. :(
