That sounds like loss of connection to the folder(s) containing your IPJs. In our case it was just ONE project file missing, and finding that amongst 250 can be hard, when all you have to go on is "s".
Luckly, as stated above, they have now fixed that.
As for your solution, you should probably try and find out if and why it loses connection. If it doesn't do that, there may be other stuff conflicting with it. Or in the end, it may be another bug (which I have yet to see)
It still doesn't quite make sense because there only 3 of us in our little office and only 2 have ever had this happen but 1 is continually having this issue. Why would it affect some of us and not the others if we are all networked in? What could we check to see if it IS a network issue on that particular machine?
As I understand it, the following could cause it - Listing as hardware and software
The network card
It shouldn't be the server, or you'd all have the problem
Permissions, as mentioned earlier - You may want to look into that.
Possible ways to check it:
Change internet cables
Change the setup on the switch
If neither of those work, it could possibly be the network card.
I don't know much on the software part, so you may want to ask someone else about that.
I wonder who marked the thread as solved? I guess it was n't topicstarter.
With Update 1 for SP1 installed (published on 1Nov) we still suffer the issue in AI2014.
I did accept as solution when the autodesk representative said it was known, and wouldn't be reproducable from SP 1
But you are right. I saw it, once again, last friday, so it isn't fixed
I just removed the accept as solution, and I hope that autodesk will get back to this and tell us what to do, if they did in fact fix it
I don't believe SP1 will fix this issue. Fixing UI issue via a hotfix / service pack is not impossible but very expensive, since we usually provide a single binary that can be applied to all languages. I think our current target delivery date is sometime in the next year, as a part of a full release, but we cannot commit anything here.

I'm happy it's only until next major release, and not next century or something
I understand that it's always an assessment of price (time) vs. impact.
My main problem with it, was that we lost some data because we didn't react fast enough, because of a message that we thought was just a bug
