Not really.  The only thing that comes to mind is that in the cases I 
observed, no ConnectionLost was ever logged.  So either the attempt to 
reproduce the problem is producing a slightly different case instead, or 
some other difference (perhaps in the code) is leading to the connection 
eventually being lost.
