Okay, the data transfer issue indicates that you lost not only the
Jabber TCP connection, but also the eventclient TCP connection (the only
two persistent TCP connections in the venue client). Could you send
your venueclient.log file for me to review?
Fwiw, I have left my venueclient running for many days at a time and not
had this problem.
In any case, we'll track it down and fix it.
