gpsd-2.32 fixes this timout error. However, there is still a serious error
in the speed output of gpsd-2.32, patch as

Subject: [kismac] gpsd and kismac - bug?

I have gpsd version 2.31 (the latest), and KisMac r99. Does anyone  
else get KisMac disconnecting from gpsd after a fair while? When I go  
"Reset GPS Subsystem" it reconnects and is fine.

However, I tried with a netcat session to gpsd, and that exhibited  
the same behavior, getting cut off at the same time as KisMac, so I  
think this is a bug in gpsd. We could include some code to attempt a  
reconnection to gpsd if the connection was dropped, and then display  
an error if we can't. I'll work on it.
