I have also noticed that the reference gossiper only seems to send extra once.

In test 3 integration, when my nodes start they already missed some of node A's rumors. When they then receive a message with extra, they drop it and request the older rumors. By the time they get to the one with extra again there is no extra anymore and nothing happens in the end.

Hello

Yes, there seems to be an error in the reference implementation. We will fix that and push the changes to student repos today.

Hello

Yes, there is an issue with the Rumor Processing. We are investigating that, and an updated version will be pushed to your repo soon.

Sorry about that
