Description Pierre Ossman cendio 2024-02-13 10:33:51 CET
If a session dies very quickly, we assume there was a bug and we show the message:

> Your session lasted less than 10 seconds.
> If you did not log out yourself, it could mean that
> there is some problem with your ThinLinc system.
> Please contact your system administrator.

However, since bug 7785, this message is no longer shown if the session dies very quickly. Instead, we get:

> The connection was dropped by the server
> before the session could be established.

Which isn't as helpful.

The cause is that we tried to add similar functionality to upstream TigerVNC, which isn't meshing well with our handling.
