Mysterious Server Time-outs

I have been disconnected (timed out) from the server three times upon logging in over the past few weeks. I have noticed that it has only occurred when I logged in around my kingdom road lot around spawn, and it only seems to happen when I log on (or maybe its just that I'm always logging on in the same area). I am able to get on the server, but it immediately crashes. When the server times-out, everyone is kicked (I believe), but sometimes, it shows that I'm still online when I ping the server again (which is a bit creepy). I have turned off all my redstone devices but this still occurs.

On a different note, it appears as though all the profile pictures have been reset to the default "steve" image except for a couple of users.

Is there anything that can be done about this?

Once or twice I've had trouble connecting with java exceptions being sited, upon launcher and game restart,  Ican connect - I don't know if this is related - also a few times in the last several days.

That's really hard to track down. If you can get repeatable results, specially with someone else getting the same, I can pin it down to a location issue in the server. Otherwise I cannot know if it's your client, your connection or something on the server.
