ok, before I comment, can I please see the actual code in question? Starting 
with the 'while 1:' statement, the entire loop EXACTLY bit for bit the way 
it is in the script file. Please post it on the list.

One thought occring to me is what sort of a connection to the server is it, 
and will the server time out if the connection remains alive for too long? 
but until I know more, I lack a clue.
