I experience this issue on a fairly regular basis.
I never have this problem using a locally available database. It's only on remote databases.
It's very annoying when it does happen, as I find I basically have to kill the app and start over.
It seems to me like there is a firewall somewhere along the line that after some time of disuse, decides the session is no longer valid and no longer passes the data.
Now, the network connectivity aspect is totally out of my control, but, the pgadmin's response to the issue could be better, for sure.

I haven't done that because I thought I would post it here first and
see if somebody had similar experiences.
I can reproduce it fairly regularly although I have taken to logging
out of the remote sessions immediately after I am done to avoid the
problem. I'll install wireshark and see if I can get a capture
To me the problem smells like a threading issue. The connection is
timing out and blocking the entire app and the gui locks up until the
timeout exceeds and the app is responsive again. Unfortunately the
timeout seems to be set to something really long.
