I'm certainly seeing these messages.  I created a cron job to reload  
the drivers and the backend early each morning (TV downtime!).  But a  
script that would check every 5 seconds or so to restart it if the  
problem appears would be great if you could send it through.

Occasionally I get a disconnect in the middle of the afternoon, so  
the 5 second thing is definitely needed methinks.
