Is there any way to reconnect to while in-game without relogging?

Thanks, stay. Since the last patch, I haven't been able to reproduce the issue--maybe they've resolved it on their end? If it happens again, I'll try your suggestion. – kevinfahy Feb 15 '12 at 6:30

It's a known issue... If this error appears frequently try to solve it by deleting the folders Cache, Cache in the Data folder, Interface and WTF.
