Do you actually leave the FR running for 10 days straight?  That may be the
problem.  There was an issue a while back with problems after the FR had
been left on for a while, and the popular answer was to reboot daily.  I
typically reboot once every 2 or 3 days.

I don't know if anyone will be able to indicate a similar experience mainly
because I'm not sure if anyone leaves theirs on that long.
