What kinds of problems will happen?  Will I lose all the offline changes
that I have made?  Can I "save" the token for my user so that if I
reboot and startup disconnected I can feed that "real" token (which may
not have expired yet) to venus and have it be happy and then when
reconnecting possibly get away without any problems or run into the "too
old" token issue and then just clog and everything's happy?\
