The Linode Shell, or lish, is the small script that runs when you connect to the host ([email protected]) for console access.
Lish now prompts you if you want to retry to connect to the console, instead of just attempting to reattach so many times and then disconnecting.
This also solves the problem for people who detatch from screen and are immediately re-attatched.
NOTE: There is one remaining bug — if you issue a reboot or shutdown the Lish program get’s killed. Eventually, Lish won’t do this so you won’t have to reconnect to the host.
