A valid channel closed by Eclair Mobile without human interventionSee original GitHub issue
Today I got a perfectly valid channel closed. On Android. Eclair Mobile 0.4.8.
New-line feeds added for readability:
local/remote feerates are too different: remoteFeeratePerKw=2781 localFeeratePerKw=45000
It was like this. I was randomly checking everything is OK before going to a bitcoin caffee, so I turned on Eclair Mobile, waited a while to see the channel is online. Everything was fine. I turned off WiFi (hoping to save some energy with this old phone) and the notification appeared about the channel being closed uncooperatively by my side. What? I did not do anything to close the channel. Maybe there is a bug which would let interpret a half-received message anyway and that would cause this strange behavior.
Time: ~14:38 EU time, today (2019-08-04) Peer Node Id: 03864ef ... a3f8f (acinq mainnet node) Funded by the peer ...Let me know what other information I shall provide, but I think all you can find is that my node initiated an unilateral closing of a channel...
I would expect the valid channels to stay up and to not be closed by magic on “my” side.
It closed the channel without asking any question.
In order to reproduce, I think you can try to turn off WiFi the moment Eclair Mobile receives gossip about feerate.
0.4.8 installed from the Play Store
Android 8.1.0 (crDroid) on Samsung S4 mini
A similarly sounding issue: https://github.com/ACINQ/eclair/issues/640 The relevant source from where the channel-closing message is: See https://github.com/ACINQ/eclair/blob/master/eclair-core/src/main/scala/fr/acinq/eclair/channel/ChannelExceptions.scala#L56
I did not have logging turned on when it happened.
No loss of funds. They will be sent to me after refund delay. Let me know how I can help in order that this issue is fixed and does not happen to anyone again.

Closing this stale issue. There is activity in the spec to leverage CPFP and RBF which will allow us to move fee management to the bitcoin wallet instead of the channel management. That will get rid of those issues.
This may be related: https://github.com/ACINQ/eclair-mobile/issues/118 but in my case I was connecting the latest (0.4.8) version of Eclair Mobile with the official mainnet Acinq node and the channel close happened on the Mobile side.
