I havn't bothered trying to find a simple reproduction since the
VM is nearly a year old, and is most likely fixed in a new
version. Once a new vm appears, and if it still shows, I'll post
a report.

It means that they raise a ConnectionTimedOut error. I'm not
entirely sure what happens after that. A Cog VM newer than 6
months old may fix it. Once I can reproduce the problem with a
recent VM, I'll make a report. Currently, I can't even start
cobalt on recent cog vm's, much less have it run for 30 minutes and
manifest this issue. And yes, that bug that causes crash on
startup is reported:
