OVM Manager 3.1.1 CLI clone big files error

We use ovm manager cli for backup purposses. During a clone operation of a big file after about 10 to 12 min. we get an error:

Error Msg: Exchange is not connected

But the clone operation is being continued successfully_.
So, from client point of view operation failed, but for server succeded.

Clone command is as follows:

ssh admin@ovmm -p 10000 "clone VirtualDisk id=$VM_FILE_ID target=$VM_FILE_REPO_ID cloneType=Sparse"

The whole message:

Command: clone VirtualDisk id=0004fb00001200004d032c969c42095d.img target=0004fb000003000072340b1e2eb70904 cloneType=Sparse
Status: Failure
Time: 2013-01-18 14:42:58.955
Error Msg: Exchange is not connected
Fri Jan 18 14:42:58 CET 2013
OVM> Failed to complete command(s), error happened. Connection closed.

We blamed timeouts, but after setting higher values nothing has changed.

Thank you in advance
