After a certain amount of inactivity whilst being connected to non-locally hosted games, the data flow between the client and the server seems to freeze. There is no immediate connection failed message, and commands seem to go through for a while but nothing seems to happen. This even occurs when connected through telnet, but on telnet the connection doesn't seem to break off unless I close it manually.
Steps to Reproduce Problem:
1. Join a BYOND game
2. Stay AFK for a while. Sometimes it takes 15 minutes, sometimes 40. It's fairly random but usually above 10 minutes.
P.S. It has recently often occured to me when I'm idle in hub:metamorphman.hangout (This is not a plug for my chat thing! :P) Other users seem to be fine.
