When I am writing a networked application (I am a Software Engineer), one of the first things on my design checklist is: "What if the network connection goes down?" (Put that next to "What information will be exposed to the net?" and "How do we restrict remote administration to a trusted set of people?")
With a little care it is possible to make an application that handles loss of connectivity gracefully, this "session layer" vulnarability should not be a problem to a sanely written application.
