This is unfortunate, but it is a limitation of the software. A year or so ago, we were having a problem caused by a default timeout that was definitely too short. To correct the problem, I reset the default timeout to the longest that the program would allow, approximately 24 hours. If you have been logged into Zeugma for about a day, you should logout and login before undertaking to write a long post.
One strategy that you might try, if you suspect that the program has timed out while you're writing a long post, is to select all the text you have written (press CTRL-A to do this), then copy it to the clipboard (press CTRL-C to do this). That way, if a post has timed out, you can login, opened the Reply window for the thread, and paste your text in (press CTRL-V to do this). Now you can submit your post, and nothing is lost
