Sometime while viewing a point cloud it will suddenly blank out, the halos remain and switching back to the photo view works. Alas,the point cloud has gone........
Restarting seems to fix the problem.

Has this happened for you in the Silverlight viewer too?  I've seen this a couple times, too... but it usually fixes itself if I close the browser or view the same synth again later. (Something just getting stuck along the way)

If you wait for the point cloud to download before navigating then you never see the problem, if you do navigate then you run the risk of losing your point cloud. It seems to happen more often in low bandwidth conditions, but as it's an intermittent problem this observation could be based on chance.
Perhaps a race condition in the point cloud download/update code?
I haven't been able to reproduce the problem in the SilverLight client yet.
