Ah, traceback was posted to mailing list...

RSA module: Plaintext too large

Bit of a worry, but apparently fairly rare, will have to take a good look after the next release.

Is this in the text or the gtk interface?

It could simply be slow to display the messages (up to several minutes). Did you see any traceback?

Made some alterations so that /read and /repeat are faster. Reopen the bug if the problem still occurs.

Often if I leave myself logged in for some time I will come back to find that there are lots of unread messages (probably quag and thomas playing ping pong, but the point remains). When I do a read, more often than not some of those messages don't get shown by /read, and I never find out what they might be.
