It's a good question, and at least right now, I can say the answer is no.
Normally, when iChain sees that one of the backend servers is down, it will
not try to use it for anything. However, with
all the weird stuff that was going on since yesterday, we started wondering
the same thing that you did, so we manually removed the broken server out of
the iChain configuration.

I see two possibilities here. One is that we installed two new extensions
yesterday and one of them is causing problems. The other, and probably most
likely, is that this has always happened and it
is only noticeable when trying to do an import. Any other ideas, anyone?

I am quite sure this always happened, I also have reports that saving pages
sometimes fails.
Which I was able to reproduce even in the old wiki. Our login code seems
to have a bug especially when doing the auto-login. I will have to look into
but unfortunately are busy with the release and release party today.

Not an expert but... is iChain still trying to log in users on the
broken server? Dividing load or something. Login being a secure
connection, so a different port then ordinary traffic, so might be in
different config? Something like that.

There appears to be some kind of bug in the login script. When I was
getting the error, I noticed that the logs kept indicating that I was logged
in iChain, but not in the wiki. Normally, it should only give that message
once. This means that for whatever reason, I was not being automatically
logged into the wiki, hence the error. When I log out and back in, the
message appears only appears once, meaning that I managed to get logged into
the wiki. Any ideas on what might be going on there?

The hardware failure yesterday really threw iChain for a loop. After
getting random reports of slowness, we reconfigured and cleared out the
some things in iChain. Since iChain handles session data, it is possible
that is what is causing your problem.

Can anyone else duplicate this?

I have had several 'Loss of session data.' errors. This was during
normal editing. Most of the time it helped to hit save multiple times.
I saw it ca 5 hours ago, when repeated save did not help.

The wiki appears to be exceptioanlly slow today.
Firebug tells me that the reload from clicking the logout button takes
29.53 seconds 'Waiting for Response'

Could you please more specific? Which wiki(s) and page(s)? If it's only
the logout that is taking a long time, that would be an iChain issue that I
need to pass on. If it's more than that, I will have to try to get as much
information as possible.

Pistazienfresser, can you try again
after starting a new session, clearing your cookies, etc.?

Hello wiki-list,

I have tried now several times to import an article with history but
every time I get an message about a loss of session data.
