Curiouser and curiouser.

My first thought would be a firewall/router/switch timing out, but
that typically happens for idle sessions, and you said somewhere that
this is happening during activity.  And of course you said this
happens from multiple source locations and multiple destinations, that
does make it harder to think a network element would be the cause.

I have active ssh sessions between various Linux systems that have up
for weeks (or months), with no issues.

Have you ever tried sniffing for network traffic related to a hung session?
