IB and get_orders_open

Is there a way to pull in open orders from IB?
If I enter an order to IB and then my program crashes, when I reconnect, the order is still sitting in my IB orderbook, but no orders available in the software via self.order. This leaves me powerless to cancel the order via software.
self.broker does not seem to have get_orders_open() method available.
Is it possible?

No, there isn't. backtrader isn't conceived as a manager of your account. You could keep the IB reference of orders you have created in your preferred form of storage and check it against the incoming order to discard it if needed.
You probably want to check/store these two fields:
m_clientId: which client created the order (you may have other clients connecting to the API)
m_permId:the host order identifier

@backtrader Would you consider adding such an API method in the future? This would be very useful feature for live trading.
