I tried to log in via the ghetto login button, via StackAuth on the room list, via StackAuth on the login page, via StackAuth after logging in and out of a SE site (SF), via the 'chat' button on Gaming...
...but no matter what I do, today I'm consistently being logged out.
The 5 minutes figure is a guess, by the way -- the only hint of my being logged off is the You must login to post message I get when I eventually decide to log back in.
I am on a very slow, very unreliable, very infuriating "3.5G" mobile connection that makes me crave for proper dialup.
XHR finished loading: "http://chat.stackexchange.com/chats/35/messages/new".

5× POST http://chat.stackexchange.com/events undefined (undefined)
When those errors start accumulating, duplicating the tab reveals I've been logged out.
I think it is lost on @drach and some commenters that:
- I do not get the same issue on chat.meta.stackoverflow.com
- I cannot reproduce this on any other internet site either.
- I've used this same horrible connection in the past few days without this problem.
- Grace has been able to reproduce this issue without being on a similarly poor connection.
