    Also, I remind you that there's evidently another (or the same)
    problem on Savannah that drops the connection after 1 hour.  

Due to runaway processes killing the system, we instituted that
hardwired timeout some time ago:

exec timeout 60m /usr/bin/bzr "$@"

I just increased it to 120m.

I know of no feasible way to determine whether the connection is
actually active.  I can imagine various infeasible ways, but I think
they would all cause more trouble than they would save.  I hope it is
merely a matter of rerunning the command that got killed off at the
magic moment, so not losing significant amounts of work.

I leave it to Michael to decide when and whether to remove it entirely,
which would clearly be the ideal situation.  We didn't put it in
lightly.  My recollection is that there was no way to determine when a
stray process would go crazy, killing savannah for everyone, and we had
to do something to stop that from happening.  I know that doesn't help
debug the software, but that's where we were.
