Hi Perrin,

I did a testing with debugging. I don't see the "connection lost contact" error anymore. The patch looks good to me.

Thanks,

Right, that's what the bug is preventing.

Because my flight was delayed last night, I had time to make a patch.  Please try this on your system and send the debug, like you did before.
