Subject: server disappearance detector is broken on some networks

Bot::BasicBot detects server disappearances by watching for irc_ping. If a server ping doesn't arrive for 500 seconds, the module assumes the worst and begins reconnecting. Servers on the freenode IRC network (formerly OpenProjects) ping clients at two-hour (7200 seconds) intervals. Bots based on Bot::BasicBot routinely disconnect every 8 1/3 minutes. -- Rocco Caputo - -
