I know that there's a patch someone submitted a while back that
may (or may not) fix that one.  I don't remember where it is, so I'm
sending this to the list also in hopes that this will jog someone's memory ;-)

It may be related to (1) above (that's what I'd guess first, anyway).
Again, hopefully someone on the list (probably the patch author) will chime
in with the info.

Oh - now that's an interesting fact.  Do you perhaps have LOTS of little
files, or a few really big files?  I recall that there's a possible issue
of one side deciding that the other side had gone away because that other
side was busy calculating and did not reply in time.  There's a timeout
value somewhere that you can make longer that may fix the problem also -
I'd try that first.  Unfortunately I'm not sure of the name of the config
option - check the documents and also look in the config file itself...
