Synergy initially working fine for many days... Suddenly... Client cannot talk to server. Mouse/keyboard stuck on client. Client side says: "server is dead" "failed to connect to server: server is not responding" Using synergyc and synergys 1.4.4 on two Fedora 14 linux boxes.
Checked everything... firewall, synergys, reboot client, restart synergys, retest,... still broken.
Server side synergys last messages are these, as I move the mouse to the client:
event: MotionNotify 0,407 find neighbor on left of "mainpc" "otherpc" is on left of "mainpc" at 0.339583 try to leave "mainpc" on left mapping state: 0 switch from "mainpc" to "otherpc" at 1279,271 leaving screen grabbed keyboard grabbed pointer and keyboard warped to 960,600 mapping state: 0 modifiers on update: 0x0000 open clipboard 0 locked motif clipboard can't read property 456 on window 0x0000015d motif does not own clipboard unlocked motif clipboard request selection=CLIPBOARD (414), target=TIMESTAMP (338), window=4200004 can't read property 454 on window 0x04200004 request failed can't get data for selection target TIMESTAMP (338) can't get ICCCM time ICCCM fill clipboard 0 request selection=CLIPBOARD (414), target=TARGETS (336), window=4200004 read property 454 on window 0x04200004: bytes=32 target ATOM (4) got data, 32 bytes request succeeded available targets: TARGETS (336), MULTIPLE (337), text/plain (463), text/html (458), UTF8_STRING (269), TEXT (467), STRING (31), COMPOUND_TEXT (466) request selection=CLIPBOARD (414), target=text/html (458), window=4200004 read property 454 on window 0x04200004: bytes=4
Then I kill the synergys server so I can be my mouse back... it is just gone unless I kill the synergys server. pgrep -f synergys; pkill -f synergy; kill -9 pid;
Looked on Synergy issues list... hard to find an exact match for this.. Not on the FAQ page.

FOUND A WONDERFUL SOLUTION!
I could never reboot my linux server.... Way too much stuff running. Too critical. But I was able to uninstall and reinstall synergys on the server side linux F14 box and now synergy is working!
This issue has been a "PLAGUE" for about 6 months... occurring about 2 times before. Now, with just a few seconds of reinstall... synergy is back to functioning nicely.
