It does not recover--at least not before we lose our patience and kill it.

I have a couple of suspicions about what might be causeing it, but there 
are just that--suspicions. 

One suspicion is that it occurs more frequently if the proxy certificate 
expires--something that happens frequently to me as I tend to just stay 
logged in even if I'm not at my desk. 

Another suspicion is that it's somehow tied to the bridgeserver--even if 
no one is unicasting.

A third suspicion is if something happens to the active log file for the 
venue server (such as I rename or delete it--let's not ask why I would 
do such a thing!) it has problems.

I'm currently trying to put a few of these suspicions to the test to see 
what, if anything, usefull gets put into the log files.
