Hi Dave, thanks for the swift reply.

No, we're working on a server in a farm; the local office connection is
a regular ADSL one, going through a Cisco PIX. The farm is about 4 hops
I suppose that the PIX is somehow affecting the connection... There's
probably a multitude of factors affecting this, and I doubt that it's
the fault of the database backend or pgAdmin... 

Regardless, I think that PGAdmin should offer some kind of option to
automagically reconnect if it sees that the connection is no longer

Perhaps there are other pgAdmin users experiencing such disconnections,
who would benefit from this?

Anyway, thanks. I'll look into the TCP streams heading in and out of
here and see what's causing this.
