I'm hearing more and more about this issue.  I'd really like to find a
nice way for conserver to try and reopen the lines once or maybe twice
and then fallback to shutting things down, but I haven't put enough
thought into the code.  For those that would like to get the old
behavior back (well, something close to the old behavior), look at line
799 of conserver/group.c.  You'll see:

                /*ConsInit(pCEServing, &rinit, 0); */
                ConsDown(pCEServing, &rinit);

Just comment out the ConsDown and uncomment the ConsInit...

                ConsInit(pCEServing, &rinit, 0);
                /*ConsDown(pCEServing, &rinit);*/

I'm beginning to believe that the ConsInit is the right thing to do and
that the number of folks experiencing the random high load/respawn
problem is very small compared to the number of folks that would
benefit from automatically reconnecting on a disconnect.
