[ejabberd] Cluster Servers stop communicating

We see this problem as well.  We have our nodes in different data 
centers, so presumably the problem is being caused by the network. 
However, it is very hard to prove what the cause is.

We created a script that periodically checks to see if the nodes have 
lost sight of each other.  The script will then automatically restart 
the "slave" node.

It would be nice if this functionality was built into ejabberd.
