More obvious "Lost Connection" indicator

While playing connected to a server, it happens from time to time that one of the players will lose connection, but not notice for quite some time because the “Lost Connection” notice quietly scrolls off the text window unnoticed. That usually causes a bunch of lost moves or what have you, when the disconnected person reconnects and resyncronizes.

Would it be possible to have a much more prominent message - perhaps some sort of popup dialog with “Lost Connection” in larger words?

Thanks for any consideration.

Disconnections should happen significantly less often now that the
game server is on an uncongested connection. I’d be willing to look
over a patch were someone to implement your suggestion, however.
