Description

When a frontend connects to a remote engine there is a chance of losing messages that arrive during the sync phase. This is a race condition that needs to be addressed.

Smuxi needs to use snapshots when retrieving chat data from the engine and the engine needs to track what as changed since then and re-queues all changes and pushes them when the frontend signals a finished sync. There is an experimental branch which implements this new sync approach, see: http://git.qnetp.net/?p=smuxi.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/experiments/sync_snapshots
