[ENet-discuss] Connection drops randomly

I think ENet will send some adminstrative packets now & then, but if you
never call enet_host_service() every second or so, you're bound to get
drops indeed.
See also the discussion on ENET_PEER_TIMEOUT_MINIMUM and
ENET_PEER_TIMEOUT_MAXIMUM that went on just these last few days.
Just pinging a bit should be ok (sending out a packet that does nothing).
