Comment (by visionkrew):

 I'm pretty sure that SB messages should count...

 The QNG command's parameter is an integer from 0 to 50. It represents the
 number of seconds to wait before sending another PNG, and is reset to 50
 every time a command is sent to the servers (NS/SB/...). '''Idle
 connections are closed after a short time, so you should send a command to
 the server (even if it's just a PNG) at least this often'''.

 As you see in the debug log, the last (SB) activity was 57 seconds before

 This should be a timer bug resulting in late PNGs and dropped connections.
