So far so good, I haven't seen this problem again in over a week.
However, it seems that ices2 is ignoring my reconnectattempts=-1.
Here's an excerpt from my logs:

The "too many failures" is the part that bugs me; my requirements are
that if the connection goes down for any amount of time, then the client
must retry indefinitely so that it connects as soon as the connection
comes up again.  Otherwise, I get an urgent page during my vacation. :/
