ACP's use of the driver is pretty "busy" and it's common that it is the thing that exposes weaknesses.
Thanks Bob; maybe that's what's going on.

Are you involved in the official AP driver beta program? If not, you might want to contact AP and get on it. I think they are close to release though and you might want to wait for that.
Yes I am, and so far the driver seems pretty solid. As John mentions in this thread, the driver retries several times, so it's possible any errors may never make it through to ACP.

If the rain ever stops, I'll continue testing the new driver.
