Gtk-Gnutella has become less than reliable recently. Version
0.94-stable running on up to date Sid on DSL.
After anywhere from 5 minutes to 5 hours, with no pattern that I've
been able to see except that all 3 "peers" remain connected but the
network indicator in the lower left goes from a "conected" to
"disconnected" red X. No uploads or downloads happen after that, of
course, but all the while the peer sessions are alive and well.
If I push that button twice, to deliberately disconnect then
reconnect, the peers are dropped and it has to find 3 new ones, but
the red X goes away and the software says it's "connected".
...for a while. It even does some batched downloading. I'll come back
after a while, and sure enough it's alive and well and "disconnected"
