[AG-TECH] bridge not in central registry

We are running a bridge server that seems to drop out from the central 
registry http://www.accessgrid.org/registry/peers.txt

Physically, the bridge doesn't seem to loose network connectivity, but 
when a client starts up and gets the list of bridges, sometimes our bridge 
is not there. After waiting a few minutes and then restarting the client, 
the bridge shows up in the list:

Bridge	 Host             Port  Type        Status  Distance PortRange 
------   ----             ----  ----        -----   -------- ----------
SHARCNET agbs.sharcnet.ca 20000 QuickBridge Enabled 0.0160   50000-50200

I can actually just run the "RegistryClient.py" command (from the bridge 
itself) and sometimes I see it listed but then on the next run it is gone.

I think it is dropping out of the registry because I would expect it to be 
first in the list since it is the closest. Even when I increase the 
"LookupBridge(self, maxToReturn=20):" it still is not listed some of the 

Any insight would be helpful
