Bug Description

A user reported on issue #900318 that the windows client showed:

Sorry, an error has occurred and Ubuntu One needs to close.

<twisted.python.failure.Failure <class 'twisted.internet.error.TCPTimedOutError'>>

We should handle this problem in a better way. First, show a better message instead of the python Error. And then perhaps retry the connection? Or remain disconnected? Telling that the application has to be closed doesn't sound good.

When will this be fixed? I am helping promoting ubuntu one to people I know and they use windows. We keep getting this error and then Ubuntu One wouldn't work anymore. Hope this will be fixed soon.

I'm sorry that Ubuntu One is not working for you.
The TCPTimeout may indicate that the control panel can not reach the internet. Are you behind a proxy? If so, Ubuntu One will not work for you, since the version you're running does not support proxy yet.

Let me know!
Thanks, Natalia.
