summary: Reconnect automatically if connection goes down
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: fun: Just needs tuits, and not many of them.
depends: reuse-windows disconnect
priority: low: We aren't sure whether to fix this or not.

Some people would like for PuTTY to have an option to automatically attempt to re-establish a session if it goes does unexpectedly.

We probably need to be able to reliably detect when disconnections were clean or not first. We'd probably also want to re-use the same window.

(Some people would like for us to remember the password so they don't have to type it again, but we won't be doing that.)

Audit trail for this wish.
