It's a "feature": the savannah bzr server has a 2-hour timeout, so it
simply closes the connection after that.

The timeout was introduced because otherwise zombie instances of the
bzr server would be left after broken connections and gradually bring
bzr.savannah to its knees.

I'm told that bzr 2.5, to be released in a few weeks, will have
built-in features that will allow to remove the timeout.  I hope once
bzr 2.5 is out, we could have it installed on savannah and fix this

Until then, I'm afraid your only choice would be to use a faster link.

Martin, is there any other workaround?  For that matter, did I
describe the issue correctly?
