Actually, in talking with Brian about it...It never seemed to happen
before on PC clients either because chat recovery didn't work until the
Cornell 1.0 and the WP 3.1 versions (on the PC anyway). If you didn't see
spewed chat, it might have been working correctly on the Mac Cornell
client. Or it might have never worked at all and you just missed chat on
busy reflectors. The problem doesn't seem to show up until a reflector
becomes "busy". So perhaps you just lucked out...It's a hard thing to do
much about because it's not predictable.

It seems now, that it effects all PC versions....I'm not sure.. it's still
a bit mysterious. :) Perhaps you seeing it in the 3.1 Mac version means
White Pine fixed chat recovery? Either that..or they broke it.
