summary: Terminal window 'trust sigils' absent after Restart Session
class: bug: This is clearly an actual problem we want fixed.
difficulty: fun: Just needs tuits, and not many of them.
priority: high: This should be fixed in the next release.
present-in: 0.71
fixed-in: 7631875d41d3eec6116ce9f132058a278df513f1 (0.72)

In 0.71, the fix for vuln-auth-prompt-spoofing added 'trust sigils' -- PuTTY icons at the start of locally generated lines -- to distinguish them from data sent by the server.

If an existing window is reused for a second session with the Restart Session action, trust sigils are missing from lines generated locally as part of the new session; they are indistinguishable from server-generated lines.
