Perhaps an inactive window should have a menu option to reactivate the session (like Duplicate Session but in the same window).

We've had one request for a "Duplicate + Kill" option. Perhaps this would be a sensible behaviour if the new "reconnect" option were invoked on a live session. (With suitable prompting, of course.)

(Some people would like this to happen automatically.)

SGT, 2004-08-14: Just implemented a "Restart Session" menu option, on both Unix and Windows PuTTY. Mostly because Owen questioned whether this feature was really easy enough to label as "fun". It hadn't occurred to me before that challenging my competence was a way to motivate me to do stuff :-)

Audit trail for this wish.
