Follow-up Comment #6, bug #14522 (project freeciv): As I were without Internet connection for some time, I know that being completely unable to connect metaserver does not crash the client. In that case there is no reply at all, so client cannot crash trying to parse it. With wrong http_proxy there is http reply which client cannot parse.
Nevertheless, I also observed that attempt to connect to metaserver blocks client for some time when there is no connection to Internet (probably dns query). _______________________________________________________ Reply to this item at: <http://gna.org/bugs/?14522> _______________________________________________ Message sent via/by Gna! http://gna.org/ _______________________________________________ Freeciv-dev mailing list Freecivfirstname.lastname@example.org https://mail.gna.org/listinfo/freeciv-dev
