I've been having some trouble with having the connection to Bloomberg 
fail after a while.  I've been using RBloomberg and wrote a simple 
function that downloads intraday data to write it to a file.  This works 
fine for a while, but will periodically give me an error saying:

Error in substr(text, first, last) : invalid Substring argument(s)

If I restart the function, it will work again.  I was wondering if 
anyone else had this problem or knew what was going on.
