Default Interesting Conundrum with Split Pipes

Please Login to Remove!

Here is an interesting problem:
I've written an app that is part of the mail program (I am a custom menu entry in the mail app, see RIM's tutorials on how to do this), and my program needs data connectivity, via BES or via WAP gateways. If you are using a BES, and the app tries to connect via a WAP Gateway, the application reaches a "split pipe" mode, and fails to work under default BES settings. Split pipes are a problem in TCP/IP stuff, I guess... I'm not 100% sure of the technical bits, but its Not A Good Thing. Anyhow, once an app runs into this problem, it seems to get stuck with a permanent "naughty flag" and will always be stopped from data connectivity, it would seem. The only solution I have is to uninstall and reinstall the whole thing, because my app runs as part of the mail app, which is a core application.
Anyone else have any ideas? Run into this problem yourself?
