As per the release notes, the longbond command was changed in the  
1.2304 release because the way that missing connectivity is handled  
was changed.  Starting with 1.2304, the long bond is automatically  
hidden (but not broken) and a dashed pseudobond is displayed in its  
place.  To hide these pseudobonds, you use "~longbond"; to show them  
again you use "longbond".  This change is noted in red text in the  
status line if you try to use "longbond" the old way.

I have no trouble restoring a 1.2304 session in 1.2306.  We would  
need the session he's having trouble with to track this down.
