As far as this problem goes, it would only occur at the end of a

it's almost surely not the problem I'm talking about.

In my case the connection does break at some point in the middle, not at the end, so it sounds like I have a different problem.

Given that this is a bzr+ssh scenario, there's a good chance that your problem is fixed by the patch cgf applied tonight. Would you mind to test this with the latest snapshot?

The problem is not fixed, but I think it's happening less often. (I can't be sure, since the problem is sporadic.) Here's what I did:

1. I installed the snapshot and updated my mirror of the bzr repository. It failed once but then worked the second time.

2. I tried (once) to create a new mirror from scratch, and it failed.

3. I rebuilt cygwin1.dll with your latest changes (2011-02-21 17:01:06) and tried again to create a new mirror from scratch. Again it failed once but worked the second time. This is remarkable, because a huge amount of data got transferred. So I'm inclined to think there's been an improvement. But I might have just gotten lucky.
