I use LinqToTwitter in my project.
Sometimes, I receive unhandled exception and application shutdown.
I caught this exception using AppDomain.CurrentDomain.UnhandledException.

System.Net.WebException: Unable to connect to the remote server ---> System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond

Can you help me with this problem?

Which LINQ to Twitter query were you using?

I find user by userName with specified hashtags. I use something like this:
statuses = context.Status
                .Where(x =>
                             x.Count == 50 &&
                             x.Type == StatusType.User &&
                             x.User.Identifier.ScreenName == userName &&
                             hashTagList.All(t => x.Entities.HashTagEntities.Select(h => h.Tag).Contains(t))
                ).OrderBy(x => x.StatusID).ToList();
Then save it to custom list.
I run this query every minute, it work fine, but sometimes I receive unhandled exception about one time in twenty-four hours.

Do you wrap the code in a try/catch block. I tried to reproduce, but the exception is always caught in my catch block. Are you using the latest version of LINQ to Twitter?

BTW, I reproduced by disconnecting my network connection.

Yes, I have wrapped code in try/catch block. Use the latest version of LINQ to Twitter. I'm tried to disconnect network connection by hand and I also caught the exception by try/catch. I don't know why the unhandled exception occur. I use windows service, I set restart service in case error, it works, but hope the exception will determine and resolved.
