Description Pierre Ossman cendio 2016-02-26 12:39:36 CET
Bug 2251 gave us the ability to tell shadowers and "normal" connections apart. This give us the option to fix this corner case:

 1. A user starts a session and connects

 2. A shadower connects and a notification pops up (CORRECT)

 3. The user disconnects, but the shadower remains.

 4. The user reconnects an a notification pops up (INCORRECT)

This is because we merely look at the number of the connections right now, not their type.

Is this a duplicate of bug 5737?
Comment 2 Karl Mikaelsson cendio 2016-03-01 15:33:16 CET
Consider getting rid of connection counting altogether and only rely on the shadower connection event to trigger a warning. While it would not get rid of the race, it would make it less likely to happen.

This got fixed as part of bug 37/bug 5737.
