    allowSocketTimeout was apparently true for me as well and I never changed it.

    I just completed an entire day's worth of interactions w/o seeing a single request fail.

    I think it originally defaulted to true, but I changed the default many years ago, so old players who had it set to the original default didn’t automatically get the new default.

    I probably should just remove it, since I think it is generally a bad idea.

    My apologies, folks. I misinterpreted a bunch of stuff to mean that the errors were purely due to mafia (something CDMoyer said, a graph he posted, the fact I couldn't replicate the errors myself, and the complaints only ever seemed to happen when using mafia itself).

    If it hasn't been already, I will bring it up in /dev, and I will also correct the misinformation in the next next patch notes. My understanding is that it's an issue with 2 of the 4 KoL servers?

    Really sorry about that!

    Thanks, Aenimus.

    Revision 19533 disables allowSocketTimeout. I left the code, as an example of how to do it, but the option is ignored and is always treated as false.

    While I can't say which fix helped, I no longer have such bad trouble. I've seen a few things that look like lag timeout, but less than once a day per character, which is something I can comfortably live with. Thanks, everyone!

    It's possible to mitigate the issues by editing your /etc/hosts file, to only connect to a "stable" server
