I often work directly on a server in vim via ssh for small changes to sites, etc. However often if I input a lot of keypresses rapidly (such as holding down a page dn, scrolling my mouse wheel or pasting directly into the terminal from the local OS) the session will disconnect.
I'm not sure if this is down to the ssh binary, my terminal program or even the remote server, and was just wondering if there was any insight as to why this happens (and possible workarounds).
I alleviate most of the frustration by using a Screen session on the remote server, but it still is a pain to have to re-login every time I forget. For example is there a keypress buffer or something that I can enable which might solve this.
