2.2 X front-end and kernel communications

Hello,

When the front-end and the kernel are running on the same machine 
but the front-end is being displayed on another through the 
X window system then a 
network problem may cause the front-end to crash while the kernel
keeps going. Is there any way to attach a new front-end to a 
running kernel? 

This problem arose today and it was annoying to have to kill the 
kernel process that had been calculating something for 30 hours
just because it had lost touch with the front-end. 

By the way, has the X/unix front-end been improved in MMA 3.0?

Thanks.
Fergal.
