Matúš you're a hero :)  Now if I only had found time to build and try

Mine neither.. but I think a simple popup to notify the user in this
important situation is justified. Something like "Contact Foo Bar lost,
you'll now be working locally on document XYZ."

Do we distinguish between 1-to-1 and MUC collaboration in the loosing
contact scenario?
