Thanks a lot for figuring this out. This has been an annoyance on
JotSpot Live, and I'm happy to have a solution. I'd suggest:

setTimeout(function(){connect()}, 1)

as a slightly nicer way to phrase that. I'm testing this locally and it
looks good - I'll be deploying it on JotSpot Live soon unless I run into
any problems.
