Also referenced at Gaim bugzilla # 1482579

My wifi internet connection drops and reconnects a lot and Gaim doesn't know how
to handle this.

I'm using the Auto-reconnect plugin on Gaim 1.50 included with Fedora 5.  I have
my Gaim minimize to the system tray when i'm not using it and am using the
system tray plugin.

It's annoying as can be because every time my internet reconnects, shortly
thereafter my gaim window pops up, steals window focus and starts reconnecting
to all my accounts.  This is also a usability issue because i have to keep
losing what I was typing as Gaim steals focus.

Proposed Solution:
I would like this window behavior to be removed and the system tray icon to just
display whether I am on or offline and the auto-reconnect plugin to just do its
thing in the background.

the reconnect dialogs and associated error messages are contained into the buddy
list for 2.0.0

We cannot fix this for gaim-1.5.x.  gaim-2.0+ seems fixed.
