Before 0.36, the client just died, which caused wedged repositories.
 From 0.36 on, the client gets a read error and prints it using the
normal mechanism. I cannot remember any consensus (or even strong
opinions) on whether the error message should be suppressed or not. It
would probably be nice to suppress it, but I would prefer some more
discussion first.
