The problem did seem to be fixed yesterday, but the disconnections are
occurring again today and ramping up in frequency as the day progresses.
Three or four days ago the connection would be lost every five minutes or
so, yesterday I believe it was stable for the whole day for the first time
in months. This morning it was once every hour or two, now it's about two
or three times an hour.
