Actually, I get that when I leave a connection to the ISUN machines on
campus too long.  I tried unsuccessfully to add the KeepAlive option to my
ssh_config & ssh2_config, but it still doesn't work.  The man page seems
to say that if either the client or the server has this on, the connection
should not drop due to inactivity, but that is not the case.  Is there a
way to send KeepAlive packets without being root on the server?
