I wonder if it might be useful to have a check for data flow, something like if no packets received on the port between your own beacons trigger a server change.
The problem with anything based on packet flow is that is dependent on the filter in use. I really can't tell if you're just in an inactive area or if your connected server is having issues. The server sends a heart-beat comment line which satisfies the quiet timer. If all traffic, including the heart-beat, ceases for longer than the quiet time, then the server is disconnected, re-DNS-translated, and re-connected. You may or may not get the same server if you are using a rotation DNS name.
