Actually, it doesn't happen every time, just once in a blue moon, which
leads me to believe it's not a bug with the actual installation of Ascii
pfiles. I could be mistaken, but I've combed through the code about a
billion times looking to see what was wrong and each time I end up closing
the window and going to get a stiff drink and a smoke. :P
I also noted that if your idle it occurs more frequently or so it seems, so
if I'm sitting there idling and haven't been active for an extended amount
of time, boomage, I get dropped from the mud and someone takes over my
socket.  Very strange indeed.
