Frequent disconnects from jabber

I have been experiencing frequent disconnects from the dreamhost jabber server. On gaim, I get disconnected about once every hour or two, with the message ‘read error’. A friend of mine who is using the same server gets disconnected at exactly the same time. Gabber, Psi, and CenterICQ all get disconnected as well.

After emailing support, they told us they have to restart the server every time they add a new user, and this results in disconnects. They said there is nothing they can do about it.

I cannot believe that everyone who is using dreamhost’s jabber server would put up with being disconnected constantly… yet I have not found anything regarding this problem in the forums. Has anyone else experienced this problem?
