When a DCC receive stalls, it just gets to 0 kB/s but doesn't abort for me. This means that (having auto-resume set) the other party cannot just attempt a re-send to continue without having me manually click Abort first.
I would like to have some option of having a timeout such that, should no data arrive for that interval, the DCC receive is aborted automatically. This way a retry can be initiated from the other end without me being around to look at the UI.
(Currently, Konversation appears to just queue the transfer...)
This bug is really special, for normal situation, like loosing the connection, or not getting a connection at all, the dcc receive/send does get a timeout -> it gets aborted. But in some very special network cases, which are basically broken networks, we still a tcp-alive package, but never get any data.
As this only happens in some broken networks, I will not add an extra traffic watcher, as normally tcp would tell us if the connection is dead.
