iChat works for a while after each boot, then disconnects without warning.

I booted and used it all afternoon yesterday. Today, when I just tried to use it (24 hours and 8 minutes since the boot), it is not connected. I try changing the offline setting to available, but it does not connect. I close and reopen it, nothing. If I reboot, it works (for a while).

Any ideas?
