Those are all good suggestions Victor.

I actually created a DBLOG file, when I was able to reproduce the error some time ago. The log was terminated as abruptly as the connection. I was unable to extract any valuable info from it.
Here are the last 10 simply stops after this.

Bind :1 : string : '040'
Bind :2 : string : ' 51-'

Bind 1 : blck : char : <2>
Bind 2 : dsca : string : 'FRESNO PID MFG '
Bind 3 : ffno : long : <452>

Bind 5 : nrgr : string : '040'
Bind 6 : seri : string : ' 51-'
Bind 7 : lngt : char : <3>

LAN (WAN) and performance are high on my suspect list. I did ask this one user to try it from a different machine however, and he got the same result. What's worse, he logged on as a different user and got the same result. That user himself could work just fine from ahy machine.
Now if it was just that one user, I would probably see what's in his desk drawers before I see what's in his PC, but it happens to a handful of users across the country.
Same users, same error, comes and goes. :confused:

I did check for network collissions, but everything looks clean.

I had a team of hotshot IBM consultants check out my kernel settings last year, and they were able to solve most (if not all) of the performance problems we were suffering then.
It is probably time to do evaluate these settings again (more sites, more users, more everything), but somehow I don't think that this would be the core problem.
Then again, if I knew what was at the core of this problem I would have bloody well fixed it by now, right? ;)
So here you go (sar -v 5 5):
