Huge transaction brought down LND again

Now the same happened, for the second time in two weeks.

Yesterday, Burak stroke again. “Sometimes to find the light, we must first touch the darkness,” he tweeted accompanying another huge transaction. This time, the impact only hit LND nodes.

Everybody else remained in synch, while LND was stuck. For a while there, LND nodes could route payments but were unaware of the state of the chain. Lightning Labs acknowledged the bug in their official channels and got to work on a hotfix that was released a few hours later.
