I haven't had much success getting any responses on the Ubuntu forums so I figured I'd try here too. Sorry for any cross-posting.

In Ubuntu Hardy, I am having a repeated problem with all IM clients (Pidgin, Kopete, Gizmo, and gaim). They will initially connect, but after several minutes disconnect for no apparent reason. This did not occur when I used Feisty and there are no drops in the internet connection. The two protocols I'm using are AIM and Yahoo and it happens with both.

Someone suggested to me that this could be an authentication issue, but they were not aware of how to fix it. As I said, it does initially connect...and I can send/receive messages perfectly fine, but after a few minutes...the connection drops on the IM client and I have to reconnect.

Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks so much!
