I have a MOSS 2007 site with a document library which uses an InfoPath 2007 form in the browser to collect information from the users. It has a number of views used to group like data elements. The form is rather complex which takes time to fill out. Users do “Save” from the InfoPath form frequently. It has many dropdown list which pull data from list in the site. Additionally, it pulls some data from a database and user detail from AD.
Randomly, users will be presented with an error after they have been filling out the form and try to switch to another view:
"There has been an error while loading the form. A required resource could not be downloaded. To try to resume the download, refresh the page."
If I look in the logs on the server (just one WFE) at the same time I see something like:
08/18/2010 16:25:22.01 w3wp.exe (0x0778) 0x11FC Forms Server Forms Services Runtime 5ajc Medium The Canary has timed out for form
I’ve seen where others have run across this as well but have not found a definitive resolution.
I have tried these:

The problem still presents itself almost daily but intermittently. I’m seriously wondering if our corporate network is to blame
