This is a nice patch! Please also provide a PR on Github against 3.6.x  
branch on https://github.com/ArcticaProject/nx-libs for this patch.

I will then merge it and recommend it for backporting to 3.5.0.x.

This feature is actually a very cool thing for the Arctica redesign of  
remote desktop computing via NX.

Question: have you tested connection setup changes (speed, compression  
algo, etc.) in connection with NXTransCleanupForReconnect? As I  
understand your patch, it should well facilitate roaming between  
networks (switching from cable to Wifi to GSM and stuff like that),  
right?

Mike
