When flows crash (according to their logs), Orion UI keeps showing the flows as running, and their run time keeps increasing. If the flow isn't running on the agent, shouldn't it show as "Failed" and not running? Still looking into what actually causes the crash - this is more about how Prefect handles them. We do have flows that runs successful as well, this is just a single flow or two crashing every time.
Here's the stack trace causing it - not sure it tells me much about what the issue is, but will look at it again later...

I have found this as well and I do not have a nice fix for it.

Hey @Thomas Pedersen @Tim Galvin we're tracking related issues around this here if you have some time we'd greatly appreciate adding your reports for these issues there

@Mason Menges, done - but if the agent never reports back to the server, should the server just leave the flows as running in the UI forever? I feel like there need to be some kind of keep-alive reporting for long running flows, where the Agent keeps telling the server that the flow is active and running. If the server never hears anything from the Agent it then should assume that the flow is crashed or similar...
