The svn version of gpsd now includes the correct logic, so 2.33 should work well... or just grab the svn head if you don't want to wait.

Apologies if anyone had trouble applying my earlier patches - the web interface I was using to access my e-mail last week forced line breaks, so you would have had to strip those before using the patch.

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

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.
