I’'m using Spark 1.1.3 on Linux at the moment, and I have the following problem:
I use a laptop which I often move between different subnets, so sometimes I might be on a wired network on one subnet, and then move to a wireless network on another subnet.
If I leave Spark running and change networks, Spark doesn’‘t realise this and keeps running, however no messages come through from other users, although the other user is not aware of this and thinks that I’'m getting their messages.
To other users I continue to show as being online, although obviously that’'s not actually the case. My online status only seems to update if I quit Spark, and reload it. Any messages that were sent to me whilst I was in that state are lost.
Now, some other applications also don’'t like having their network interface changing from under them, however if I standby my laptop before changing networks (which I normally do), other apps like Thunderbird and Firefox recover OK after resume and just continue to work as normal.
Anyone else have this problem?
