This should never happen. The UID should always be valid. After a short
time the connection is dropped but getting a new connection and subsequent
session should retrieve a new UID. It's either a bug in the error messages
or something more serious. I'll have a look at the code. What version
are you using and have you modified the code?

Mmm, that's interesting. There's another thread within the client that
should not stop even if the GUI thread is put to sleep but I wonder if the
AWT is doing some Thread monkey business and the UID really has expired.


May The Source be with you.
