A couple of months ago I finally got S3 configured on my main
frontend. I experienced the same thing - when waking up the frontend
after a few hours of the frontend being suspended, the connection
between the frontend and the backend was borked somehow - not enough
for it to give an error message in the frontend, but enough to give
funny behaviour in the frontend (missing recordings, etc). I didn't
have time to look into it (or even create a ticket or check for old
tickets) at that time, so a quick workaround to keep a high WAF, was
to restart the frontend every time the system was resumed. I haven't
had time to look any further into it yet, but the problem was
consistent on my 0.24-fixes system (up to date as of one month ago).

Best regards
