Masternodes constantly going offline

I have had two MN running for quite a while with no issues to speak of. Since I've updated to 11.X they have been amazingly unstable and I have no idea why. By unstable, I mean they keep falling off the MN list. darkcoind is still running on my VPS, the VPS is up and was always up, but the nodes keep going off the MN list. getinfo returns exactly as expected and shows no errors.

It's driving me insane. I've deleted peers.dat, reindexed, etc... I start darcoind on the VPS, start the mn with local hotwallet, and everything comes up just fine. After some random period of time which so far has always been less than 2 days (and is usually only a few hours) the nodes fall off the mn list. I restart everything again, and they come back online only to die a few hours later.

Any ideas?

I've had this when I updated from v0.10 to v0.11...but deleting peers.dat fixed it.

Care to share a debug.log (or if you want to keep it private, send it to Evan directly)?

I can do that next time it happens. I upgraded to 11.10 last night and since the restart after upgrading they stayed up (about 5 hours as I write this).

Ok... both nodes are now no longer in the MN list. I wrote a cron to log the status every 5 minutes. They both came up at the same time:

Wed Jan 21 03:30:01 UTC 2015
"108.61.252.50:9999" : 1,
"108.61.202.228:9999" : 1,
---------------------------------------------------------------------​

Then, within 75 minutes both were off the MN list:

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Wed Jan 21 04:05:01 UTC 2015
"108.61.252.50:9999" : 1,

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Then... back on the MN list after a couple of hours....

Then up for almost 18 hours... but now dead again...

I's love to attach the log, but seems I can only upload images... This needs to be fixed...
