Not that this helps, but Salut (local network) is the fallback when  
Gabble (remote jabber server) fails, so if you have a jabber server  
set, and it intermittently shows you remote vs. loca buddiesl, then  
the jabber connection is intermittently failing. If a jabber server is  
specified Gabble attempts to connect from time to time (not sure where  
the actual code is but it feels like 5-10min to me).

So (for whatever reason) sounds like Gabble isn't able to hold up the  
connection to the Jabber server, or the Jabber server you have set is  
flakey (FWIW: jabber.sugarlabs.org has been ropey as hell for me  
lately, I switched my collaboration testing to Salute some weeks back  
so I could have more Sugar testing control and less random remote  
server failures/issues).
