Signs out by itself and signs in by countdown

    Is there anyone else suffering from this?
    Occasionally, Msn Messenger signs out by itself and then it makes a
    countdown to sign back in automatically.
    I got this issue after installing the latest release MSN Messenger version
    The last version 7.5.0311 is absolutely fine.

  2. Every so often Messenger "refreshes" itself against the server. If it can't
    connect to the server then it automatically logs you out and after a set
    interval (15 seconds I think it is) it will log you back in.
    I've seen it happen a couple of times but not very often.
    When you login to messenger, it will pick a random port number from a range
    it uses, so chances are when it automatically re-signs you back in again you
    will be using a different port for your connection.
    I think this is the reason why it signs you out and back in again rather
    than just displaying a message (although I'm not 100% sure).
