Then, either immediately or after hours of play, the environment suddenly becomes unresponsive. My toon is able to move around, but NPCs do nothing when clicked, chat traffic vanishes, the Logout and Exit Game buttons do nothing, etc. If I wait long enough, I get a "Disconnected from server" error. Happens on all toons and on all realms where I have characters. There isn't a network issue, and rebooting my Ubuntu system has no effect.

Second time was yesterday; I came back after the maintenance outage today and the problem was gone. Third time is now.

This happens ALL THE TIME, and it is a network issue... but I believe
it is on blizzards part, We have Several WoW installs a Few on wine in
and 1 on a macbook pro (running native OSX Warcraft) and one on
Windows xp. sometimes one these installs will drop connection with
blizzards servers at what seems like random. all the other machines
will be on and active no trouble.
in summary, I believe this is not a wine issue I have seen it on OSX
and Windows and wine.
