[Buildbot-devel] Non-fatal disconnects?

I also see this problem quite frequently, in a windows environment.  In
my case, however, I know that this is not due to a firewall problem
since it's all on the same LAN.  

It would be nice to ensure that builds can continue if connection is
restored, but from what I have seen, I believe that in some situations,
a wrong disconnection is detected in the first place.  That would be
really nice to solve that one.  I haven't found any usefull in the logs,

I second this feature request. :)
