This happens also when NM drops the connection, which can happen at any time
from a few hours to as many as 21 hours. If you are able to work without it
for a time, it can be re-connected. There are various bug reports about this
sort of thing, and I've attached logs to
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=472248, as I'm sure this is one
single problem affecting a few scenarios.
