It does seem to stop working sometimes, after running for a while.
The processes (gllin and gpsd) are still running but no more NMEA data
comes out (which I check by running gpspipe -r).  Late last night
after I got pyroute working I went for a walk down the street to see
if the red dot would move, and it went a little nuts for a while (had
me traveling very fast to a point several blocks away) then stopped.
When I got back home I reconnected via ssh and did gpspipe -r and it
was not emitting any more data.  The same thing happened this morning;
I powered up the phone (but did not start pyroute), watched it get a
fix, had breakfast, came back and gpspipe -r was not emitting any more
