That may be true, but it does not explain all the facts.
1. When Alpine is run directly on the server, with a window open on the
actual server machine itself, there is no problem with the connection or the
Inbox staying open.
2. When Alpine is accessed over SSH and the Inbox is open, the whole SSH
tunnel dies periodically; it is not that the Inbox suddenly closes. Even
supposing that the Inbox is closing, why would the whole SSH tunnel die as
the result of that?
