This system (http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4868.0
) used to work flawlessly for me, but now it has stopped downloading the blockchain. I hadn't opened it in awhile, so I did this morning and let it sit. When I came back to it, the client is sitting right where it started, at block 117882, 8 connections, and won't download any more blocks. I closed it, opened it up and saw it go to 117883, so I minimized the window. An hour later, it is still at that level. Each time I open the client I download 1 block and then it stops.
Edit: While typing this the client suddenly dropped connections down to 6, downloaded up to block 117903, increased connections to 8, and then stopped again. Anybody have any ideas about what is causing this?
