This is a very simple problem. I use gnome-terminal to SSH to other machines every day. I do this on a laptop which I carry around the office, so I am constantly switching between wired and wireless networks. When this happens my SSH sessions drops off and the terminal freezes.
Why does this happen (the freezing, not the session dropping) and is their a way to prevent it? I know I can get around this by logging off from the remote server before I know I want to disconnect my laptop from Ethernet.
It's annoying because I have to manually close the terminal session after it has frozen which pops up a dialogue box and I also lose the title of the session - all very time consuming. It would be much better if the ssh session just got killed and it returned me back to the local bash prompt.
