XLIB IOERROR network disconnection?

» close window

The Question is:

When our software on Alpha starts up it runs a quite a few processes - some of
 which each popup a few windows (XWindow) on dedicated PC workstations running
 the Exceed X-server. The PCs are on the same Ethernet LAN as the Alpha. The
 no. of windows on each
 is PC is small.
The problem is that some of the Alpha X-clients sometimes crashes. An example is
XIO:  fatal IO error 65535  on X server "rwsca2:0.0"
      after 679 requests (679 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
%XLIB-F-IOERROR, xlib io error
-SYSTEM-F-LINKDISCON, network partner disconnected logical link
%TRACE-F-TRACEBACK, symbolic stack dump follows
  image    module    routine             line      rel PC           abs PC

                                            0 FFFFFFFF8074B2A4 FFFFFFFF8074B2A4

                                            0 FFFFFFFF807A703C FFFFFFFF807A703C
 XMILIB  APPCTL  xmi_go                 40234 000000000000125C 0000000000088D5C

The crashed processes do not crash again when manually restarted shortly after
 our software is done starting up processes.
Judging from the stack dump it looks like maybe the Exceed X-server is dropping
 the connection because it is not receiving timely input from the X-client on
Where should I focus to fix this problem? Exceed?
Thank you very much.
