I've seen similar oddness with other networking that had to go through a
stateful firewall - worked fine as long as there was activity, but during
long inactive sessions the firewall would time out the state entries and
treat subsequent packets as "not part of a known connection".  Does it
keep working on Saturdays if you create a dummy program that just generates
a throw-away log message once a minute?  If so, then your system has an
inactive timer that's going off and shooting things down.

Oh yeah, and check for cronjobs running just before the last message when
it stops running.  If it rolls over and dies at 5:03AM every Saturday, it's
time to check those 5AM cronjobs. ;)
