Annoying it is, yes.

I hadn't answered before as I'm not running the CVS version yet, and its
networking is handled somewhat differently.  However, AFAIK, that's not a
new error, as I've had problems with it on the current PAN version and
previously as well.  The thing is, sometimes you can see it get an error
and continue with the others as you'd expect.  Other times it hits the
first error and shuts everything down.  Maybe it depends on exactly which
error the server returned?
