#431 reconnection failure


My connection to the IRC server for one bot I'm running
timed out. My irc client reconnected after several
retries, but supybot did not. I had to manually
restart supybot. I'll try to provide more details
soon, but reproducing a ping timout is a pain to reproduce.

    Here's the part in logs/misc.log that is relevant. It seems
    to have given up and stopped trying to reconnect.

    Thanks for that portion from your logs, it was the key to finding the
    problem. You uncovered not only a bug in Supybot, but a bug in Twisted,
    congrats :)

    It's worked-around in our CVS.
