Hi Linwood,

Thanks for helping Rainer work around this problem. I will order a new 
laptop for testing this issue in the next week or so. Unfortunately I 
only have older laptops on hand at the moment. With any luck, I'll be 
able to diagnose this problem and hopefully implement a fix.

BTW, are you using the new BETA series? The later releases should be a 
lot more resilient to temporary connection issues which could lead to a 
daemon malfunction. If that doesn't help, please feel free to forward me 
the logs and I'll try to sort out the problem.

Thanks again,
