Ahh, no, the browser daemon might get swapped out, but there is more
than enough memory to keep a ssh session going during an upgrade.
Upgrades don't take that much ram anyway, the danger is to run out of
'disk' space.

My guess is that it is just the way our non-standard network
configuration mojo works: if the icd2 daemon gets updated, it takes the
network down with it during replacement.  I am not sure about this,
maybe it is just a small bug somewhere, or maybe it is a big design flaw
of our network configuration mojo, or something inbetween.  We just need
somebody to care and fix it.

There should be no need to kill the network.
