I'm not sure what discussion you're refering to (it may have been before I 
joined the list). The only form of "stay alive" that I'm aware of is the 
channel 5 FLAP that gets sent every 58 seconds.

This is just a wild guess, but could it not be a bug in a particular client 
that's just getting forwarded through the server? Perhaps try keeping a log 
of what commands are causing the problem and what users they are coming from 
(assuming they are user-originated commands and not server commands).

Great movie! Enjoy.
