I believe both livepage and athena currently have broken reconnect  
support, so if the server->client socket closes unexpectedly for  
whatever reason (the most common reason is you have an HTTP proxy  
with a timeout of a small number of seconds), the client will attempt  
to reconnect to the same livepage session with the same client id (as  
it should), but the server doesn't accept the reconnect attempt and  
throws an error.
