I'm saying I've never had that problem or heard of a problem where the 
stream goes away so I'm guessing there is some network anomaly that is 
causing it.

I have seen this behavior when my NFS mount decided to go away on me, so 
it sounds reasonable that momentarily dropping network would cause your 
symptoms as well.
