Were you able to determine if your ssh tunnel stayed connected even when 
no data was sent over it for a period of time?  (We've exchanged emails 
on this issue before, and I believe this is an unanswered question).  Do 
you start your application by running a python script or some other, 
non-python executable?

Note that the debugger is not designed to automatically detach and 
reattach.  Detaching and reattaching may be done explicitly by the user, 
but I don't think you're trying to do this.
