well, i wouldnt mind that, i know for sure that i wont try to login a 2nd time.
besides one could make it save and allow only, lets say 3 auto-reconnects every 24h hours, that should be enough.
or only auto-reconnect if youve been connected for more than one hour before.

Problem is that a disconnect can be caused by network troubles, but also by you logging in with another program or from another location. If we reconnect when you have logged in differently we can a race-condition: the two programs will keep reconnecting and kicking each other off the network.

We will improve bitlbee in the future to see the difference between two such disconnects.

reconnect
how can i tell bitlebee to auto-reconnect after it has lost the connection? i use it for icq only. my provider unfortunately has a 24h disconnect and every time it happens i have to reconnect to the bitlebee server and reidentify myself in order to get connected to icq again.
