What's the best way to track whether a particular Mozilla bug fix has been merged into the Phoenix tree?

To take an example, I've been seeing the symptoms of <a href="http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=177326">bug #177326</a> pretty frequently in Phoenix for some time now. This has been marked as fixed on the Mozilla trunk, but I found the same symptoms in the nightly build from 12th November 2002.

How can I tell when this bug fix gets rolled into the Phoenix nightly build?

Well, that bug you pointed to has been checked into the v1 tree for 1.0.2 (see <a href="http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=177326#c27">comment 27</a>). Phoenix is building off 1.3a. Does this problem exist in 1.3a?

I also said that it was included in the Trunk already 31st of Oct. Supposedly Phoenix is built directly from the trunk so I have no idea why it's not working.
A developer comment on this? :)

Sorry to go dark on this - I've been trying to establish a definitive test case, but it's too random.

Anyway, I am still seeing the request failure problem. The issue is as described in bug #177326 where if the request fails then there are nine followup requests issued. Obviously this is not as important for GETs of relatively static content, but it can really screw up form submissions! If this happens through my webmail client then I send the same message nine times; if it happens when going through Blogger then... well, you get the idea.

This seems to happen most often when Phoenix has been running for a while, but it is not predictable. I'm currently running the nightly build from 26th November.

I'm thinking it's a Phoenix-specific issue because I run other Mozilla-based browsers (eg Mozilla 1.1) and I've not seen this "multi-post on request failure" behaviour in anything else.

So - the setup where the error occurs: Win2000 SP2 or WinXP; nightly build 26-Nov-2002; I'm behind a non-proxy firewall (at work). I don't get this at home on either the Win2k machine there, or Linux, or Mac OS X (this last obviously isn't a supported platform, but...).

Still very puzzled, in other words.

The fix for this specific bug is definitely in Phoenix, but Bug 177326 isn't the only one dealing with problems like this. You might also want to look at Bug 135182 - "add delay before restarting on NS_ERROR_NET_RESET (was: get 'the document contains no data pop up')" for example, especially the comments #79 and #80.
