Another thing that has that effect, that I'd forgotten about since
leaving dial-up internet, was an interface going down that NTP was
using.  I had to put an NTP restart script into my ifup post PPP script,
to restart the NTP server after a new connection.  It just wouldn't keep
on working by itself.
