[master] 5d8a6c001 For CLI commands forwarded indirectly to the worker (via mgt_cli_askchild() as opposed to directly through mcf_askchild()), a truncated CLI response is not a failure.

One of the reasons our issues fail to resolve is that the start
wandering all over the place and I've had it with that.

Reading through ever longer sagas to try to divine if a given issue
can be closed or not is not productive use of anybodys time.

It is painfully obvious in bug-washes, that the longer the issue
comments, the less people are willing to engage and try to close,
and no wonder!

3038 was a bug in vcl.list, that problem is solved and the ticket is closed.

If there are seperate issues in VTE, then by all means open a ticket
on that *AND ONLY THAT* so that we can close it when that issue is solved.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
