iJournal login/connection problem?

For the past month or so, after iJournal is open for a while, it appears to lose its connection to LJ (at least that’s what I’m guessing). It’ll hang on “checking for new friends’ posts...” until I quit the program. If I re-login without quitting, I get a login error; I can’t remember the exact error since I automatically quit each time the problem arises, but I can if necessary. Also, while it hangs on “checking”, I get a posting error. (Again, can’t recall the specific error for the same reason.)

Any idea why this is happening? Thanks for the help!

I've noticed something similar happens now and then. It seems like it might be related to putting the machine to sleep when iJ happens to be in the middle of a friends page check; this certainly happens a lot less since I decided to make it stop checking (preferences, 'options' tab, the popup down at the bottom). It also occasionally happens during what I believe are the peak usage hours for LJ, when the servers are swamped and sluggish.

I suspect iJ's talking-to-LJ code may need some timeouts inserted in it, though I haven't looked at that part of the source at all.

Possibly, but I don't put my computer to sleep. Instead, I use the screen saver when I'm not around it.

It may be an issue with peak usage hours, but that would imply that eventually, it would get a response from LJ as soon as usage decreases; however, it doesn't.

I'd recommend upgrading from version 1.49 to 1.51 (I think that was the latest release; I'm using 1.52 from CVS); I'm not sure if that issue has been completely fixed but the newer version does seem to be a bit more stable.

I am using 1.52, and I'm still getting this problem.

I've noticed that under the 10.3 seed it crashes while trying to get music from iTunes.
