I agree Emil patch is simple, and the solution is easy.

I agree with Gary that the solution is wrong, the collaboration stack
should just work without the user intervention.

I agree no one wants to invest time fixing the collaboration stack for
real, so I agree to go with a workaround.

Just want to ask, couldn't this be workarounded without requiring the
user intervention?  For example checking from time to time if the
network is connected, and if not performing a refresh.

I just hope more of us drop tears each time we sacrifice Sugar simplicity :)
