Comment (by asbjornu):

 I agree, it's a bit irritating having to re-enable accounts all the time.
 I think it's okay that accounts are disabled if the connection error is
 the user's fault (erronous screen name, password, network configuration,
 etc), but if the connection problems are due to something external to the
 user and all settings are correct, the account should not be disabled. In
 any case a checkbox in the settings called "Disable account on connection
 errors" would be nice.
