As of r15301, it says "contacting". Maybe it should be "reaching"?

"Don't go offline" is essentially cancel: the operation failed,
no retries or workarounds will be tried and the initial error
message will be shown to the user.

Because the "Want to go offline?" dialog (now with this new title)
is used internally in the log cache infrastructure, it is hard to
affect the calling user dialog. Therefore, there is no simple and
consistent way to close the log or rev graph dialogs as well.
"Cancel" will seemingly return immediately to the calling dialog
and show the error. That dialog, in turn, must be closed manually.
Alternatively, the user may re-establish the server connection
and retry with F5.

Yuck! I don't see this dialog anymore as my setup is on "auto-pilot".
Although it is hard to place 3 buttons in a 2x2 grid, I tried my best ;)
