I wasn't suggesting that those were issues, I was asking if it was.  It 
sounds like that probably has nothing to do with the issue going on and 
is just normal disconnects.  I thought a windows update may have gone in 
as this literally just started occurring suddenly about 6 weeks ago.  
But alas, mac and linux clients see the same issue.
