Hi Dimitriy,

deadtime is set to "0" (= default value).
Maybe the documentation is wrong here?? (it says: "A deadtime of zero 
indicates that no auto-disconnection should be performed.")

Or could it be a problem in the implementation? I've googled around and 
found that windows servers (NT4 and above) have a default disconnect 
time from 15 minutes. But with a windows server this wasn't a problem 
for me at any time.
