After disconnecting from the Internet during a game (any science puzzle), and then reconnecting during the same game, Foldit crashes.

Windows 7 64-bit Application Error Log:

I suspect this problem occurs whenever an Internet connection drops out during gameplay, and Foldit tries to use the Internet, but obviously cannot (Timeout issue). For wireless Internet users, this can be a fairly common occurrence, with dependence upon signal strength being key.

Thanks, beta_helix. Maybe Foldit could be programmed to display the word "Offline" in the chat boxes, if it looses connection to the Internet (similar to the "Joining chat…" message).

Win 7 64 bit, very similar:

Crashes every time during "Loading…" splash regardless of options or whether choosing Play Online or Play Offline. Quit is the only thing that does not crash. Is there additional information I can provide?

Hmm interesting.
I have win 7 64 bit and wireless and I have never had that happen.
Perhaps its because I am logged in on a chat client, so any discons dont affect my game client.
