I've seen this happen, once.  I'd quickly created a number of files on
the client, the last two being tar files of some 6 megabytes each, and
things became as you describe.  Watching the activity of venus over
time with 'codacon', I noticed that it would, periodically, try to
resynchronize (by copying the tar files to the server), and then go
into the disconnected state again.

I got things back to normal by restarting either the client or the
server -- I don't recall now which it was, but I concluded that
something was in an erroneous state, and decided not to worry unless I
saw it happen again, which, so far, I haven't.
