If your problem is caused by the display-size issue (which occurs only if
the ZRLE encoding is being used) then you may well see it silently drop,
because by the time the disconnection occurs, the connection will have
reached a state where a silent connection closure is a reasonable thing to
do. Ideally, a (useful) error message should be printed - this is something
that we'll be looking to add in an upcoming release.
