Auto disconnect when idle? Flood?

Players on my pennnmush game have noticed a bug that's baffling me. They can chat and roleplay like normal, but if they're silent for more than a few minutes and then suddenly pose a reply in room or chat, their screen freezes and then the MUSH kicks them off about 30 secs later. As long as they keep up a constant stream of chatter, no one gets kicked. Silence and then pose and everyone gets kicked. Ideas? What kind of problem could this be? Thanks :)
