So (for those interested) it seems there are several problems:

- Just disconnecting from wifi with the menu from the wifi icon is
temporary, and makes the n900 reconnect by itself later. My fault, I
didn't know that.

- The Facebook empathy plugin is severely broken, in that it makes some
other empathy plugins loose their connexion and try to reconnect
regularly. I had to delete the FB account from "Conversations" to make
them work again. After checking, the same thing happens on a plain
Debian desktop. I'll try reporting a bug upstream, but maybe a bug
@maemo.org would also be needed, what do you think ?

- The wifi driver apparently has some troubles reconnecting to my AP
after a while. Rebooting the n900 makes the problem go away. Next time
it happens I'll try to gather some logs.
